Nine British universities have been ranked in the top 100 institutions in the world, as measured by the strength of their global "brand".

The rankings have been compiled by Times Higher Education from a survey of 10,000 academics across the world. There are six institutions from Germany and five each from Japan and the Netherlands.

Ranked at 91, Indian Institute of Science is the only Indian University to have made it to the prestigious list. The table's Top 20 comprises 13 American universities, four from the United Kingdom, two from China and one from Japan.

THE says that a university's brand is vital for attracting talent, strategic partners, philanthropy and investment.

Other US schools in the top 20 were the California Institute of Technology, Columbia, the University of MI, the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell.

Baty said: “All UK universities have either fallen down the global pecking order this year or stayed static.

"This should give pause for serious thought as the country seeks to champion its status as "global Britain" in a post-Brexit world", Phil Baty, editorial director of the rankings said.

Overall, Europe claimed 33 places, with the United Kingdom the best represented, followed by Germany (six universities in the top 100) and The Netherlands (five universities). THE noted in its analysis of the survey data that while Asia's leading universities ranked highly, the majority of votes came from academics within the university's home country.

Time's reputation chart is dominated by USA schools that, along with Harvard, MIT and Stanford, hold 44 spots in the top 100.

“The National University of Singapore climbs three places to 24 – narrowing its distance from the top Chinese institutions – and Nanyang Technological University moves from the 81-90 band to the 51-60 bracket.”.

Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore remains India's mainstay in the global university rankings. This year, over 10,000 academics were asked to rate institutions based on excellence in research and teaching.
