Dutch universities drop in international rankings

AMSTERDAM – Dutch universities have fallen on an annual international ranking chart, with just two in the top 100 compared with five last year. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is ranked best in the QS World University Rankings 2016, while the University of Cambridge once again beats Oxford.

But, reports NOS, despite their best efforts to attract international students and teach ever more courses in English, most Dutch universities have fallen down the rankings. The University of Amsterdam, highest in the Netherlands, drops two spots to 57th place, although TU Delft rises two to 62nd. But Leiden, Utrecht and Groningen have fallen out of the top 100.
