The ranking is topped by the Institute  of Tehcnology California, followed by Oxford, Stanford and Cambridge; apart from US and British universities, only a single European university ended in the Top Ten group: Swiis Tehcnology Institute ETH in Zurich, spokeswoman of the STU Andrea Settey Hajdúchová noted for the SITA newswire.

The chart evaluates the level of education, research, cooperation with practical experience, and foreign collaboration. STU received high points mostly due to its cooperation with practice and foreign institutions, Settey Hajdúchová explained, emphasising the top position it had the previous year in connection with practical experience among Slovak universities.

In foreign collaboration, the number of foreign lecturers and professors, foreign students and international co-authoring of science and research were considered. This has been the 12th time of the World University Rankings.
