Every year QS and other organisation publish their annual ranking of the best university in the world. Every years parents dream of sending their kids to Harvard or MIT. But can the dream become a reality or are you better of making a rational decision? For those who can afford an average $40 000 a year tuition fees, the main stumbling block is the low acceptance rate of those top university. '' Imagine moving to Boston thinking your kids will get into Harvard or MIT to end-up paying the same price for averagely-ranked Boston University?'' Has your son being living his teenage years as a playboy? Well in that case, most top universities might be out of reach even if you can afford it; but not all of them. We have published a ranking of the top universities indexed on their quality of education and accessibility, both economically and academically. Here is what the top 10 looks like:
In other sense, this is as well an indication of which country offers accessible quality education to its population. As seen, the top 10 is dominated by UK university, with half of them taking the top spots. Both Canada and Switzerland have 2 entries in the top 10, but Switzerland certainly comes out with most the plaudits with first and fourth places in the ranking.
Furthermore, a ranking of cities is also made in a map format. You can access the full list here: The STC University Index
