University of Iceland maintains in the top 300 at the World University Rankings 2013-2014, published in UK magazine Times Higher Education on Tuesday.
The university ranks in the 251-275 range, for the second year in a row. In 2011 the institution ranked 25 places lower.
The evaluation is based on several factors such as quality of tuition, international collaboration and research activity, Mbl.is reports.
University of Iceland ranks in the top 2% of all the universities in the world, which add up to approximately 17 thousand. At the top of the list is California Institute of Technology, closely followed by Harvard and then Oxford universities.
As the rector of University of Iceland, Kristín Ingólfsdóttir, has declared it her mission to make the university one of the world’s top 100, this is good news although the climb ahead is somewhat steep.
