    Good I would always like to point out that this is a very subjective ranking. In South Africa, each University has its own specialisation and many are not listed e.g Medunsa - Medical University of South Africa or Rhodes University; they are one of the leading universities both in research and academia yet these dont even show up.

    Up to today, I don't know what makes a university is better than the others.

    Isn't they teach the same subject?
