Zurich uni beats Cambridge to second-best in Europe
The Federal Polytechnic in Zurich, the ETH, is now the second-best university in Europe, knocking down Cambridge in England. Oxford remains in first place.
The World University Ranking by QS says small classes, cutting edge research and the employability of students are all factors in the change.
On a global level, ETH is sixth and the EPFL in Lausanne is at 18th.
The top three in the world are all in the US. MIT is top, then Stanford followed by Harvard.
