The University of Oxford leads the table for the fourth consecutive year, while Princeton University joins the top 10 after climbing one place to 10th.

There are also some eye-catching improvements for the US just outside the top 10: UCLA rises five places to 11th, Caltech rises 12 places to 13th and Washington rises five places to 16th, largely because of improvements in their teaching and research scores.

Australia has a new number one university for computer science: the University of Melbourne, which ranks 51st overall.

Three institutions rank in the top 100 in their debut year; Institut Polytechnique de Paris is 48th, Université Paris-Saclay is 76th and National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan is joint 88th.
