For the second year in a row, the best college in the world isn't in the United States. Oxford University has once again retained the top spot in the Times Higher Education's annual ranking.

In fact, for the first time ever, the top two spots on the list are occupied by British schools, with the University of Cambridge coming in at number two in the rankings.

"To be judged the best university in the world for the second successive year, against a backdrop in which Britain’s role in the world is uncertain and the place of universities in society open to question, will be a great source of pride for everyone at Oxford, and, I hope, for the whole country," Louise Richardson, Oxford’s vice-chancellor, said.

“Success in our field is never an accident,” she told the Times Higher Education, adding that it is “achieved by a relentless pursuit of excellence, creative brilliance and a deep commitment to our enduring values”.
