WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in education rankings, today published the 2022-2023 Best Global Universities rankings. The overall global university ranking in the new edition evaluates 2,000 schools – up from more than 1,700 last year – on academic research and reputation.

The 2022-2023 edition includes universities from more than 90 countries. The following countries have the most schools in the overall ranking:

  • China: 338
  • United States: 280
  • Japan: 105

“The Best Global Universities rankings offer prospective students a valuable resource for exploring higher education options outside of their home country,” said Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News. “Over the past nine years, these rankings have expanded to include more schools and more subjects, while maintaining a consistent focus on institutions that prioritize academic research.”
