London, September 9, 2013 — QS has announced the tenth edition of its annual World University Rankings.

The US takes 11 of the top 20 positions, but its dominance has eroded since the financial crisis. Of the 83 US universities in the top 400, 64 rank lower than in 2007/8.

The 43 US public universities in the top 400 have lost an average of 20 places since 2007/8, following successive government funding cuts.

In contrast, 70% of the 62 Asian institutions in the top 400 rank higher than in 2007, yet still no Asian institution in the top 20.

Researchers say austerity measures in the wake of the recession have contributed to an “affordability crisis” for students at leading institutions.

“The decline in affordable publicly funded education and the increasing dominance of private institutions means many students may now risk being priced out of a world-class education,” says QS head of research Ben Sowter.
