German universities have shot up the world’s leading higher education rankings, with Germany now having more institutions among the world’s best than any other country after the US and UK.
Germany gained two new universities in the top 200 of the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings bringing its total to 12. That ensured it leapfrogged the Netherlands into third place.
It also has a university in the world’s top 30 for the first time – Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich, the rankings released on Wednesday showed.
