London, May 30, 2018 — The most valuable asset in a crowded market is reputation. Times Higher Education (THE) today announced the World Reputation Rankings 2018 comprising the world’s top 100 most prestigious universities.

According to Times Higher Education, its World Reputation Rankings are created using the world’s largest invitation-only academic opinion survey, a unique piece of research.

“The Academic Reputation Survey, available in 15 languages, uses United Nations data as a guide to ensure that the response coverage is as representative of world scholarship as possible. It is also evenly spread across academic disciplines,” THE elucidates.

The reputation table ranks institutions according to an overall measure of their esteem that combines data on their reputation for research and teaching.

Paris: Amber Heard is the new global spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris. “Fearless, witty and smart, defying definition and rejecting convention, meet the Hollywood actress and committed woman making her voice heard,” the brand announced.

A Texas native who grew up training horses, Heard is the first to admit that she never really imagined herself in the world of beauty, though she did dream of beauty pageants as a young girl.

“I have always loved the fun of beauty and the power of transformation,” Amber Heard said. “To become a spokesperson for this dynamic, world-loved beauty brand that has been telling women they were of worth since before I was born, and to join the L’Oréal Paris family of changemakers is such an honor. I feel like these women, my fellow ambassadors, who represent a voice, a power, a movement, and an opinion.”

“Over the years I’ve always thought not just to be an actor, but to use my voice as a platform for making the world a slightly better place and for empowering women in the best way that I can,” Heard elaborated.

Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, L’Oréal Paris Global President, remarked, “Amber Heard is one of a new generation of actresses rewriting the script when it comes to having a voice in the world. The energy Amber Heard brings to her philanthropy, to her advocacy, and to her performances, make her a powerful ambassador for L’Oréal Paris as we take ‘Because I’m Worth It’ beauty into 2018.”

LONDON, May 8, 2018: London is the world’s best student city. The fifth edition of the QS Best Student Cities Ranking, released today, sees London replace Canada’s Montreal as the world-leader.

London rises to the first position primarily as a result of increasingly positive responses to QS’s student survey, which asks students about the quality of experience in a city, and their willingness to remain there after graduating.

Ben Sowter, Research Director at QS, said: “The 2018 ranking highlights the enduring quality of the student experience available in London. The city benefits from outstanding employment prospects, more world-class universities than any other city, and excellent lifestyle opportunities. These factors mean that the capital remains a great place to study despite eye-watering costs - as more than 50,000 student respondents to QS’s survey have made clear.”

The QS Best Student Cities index, published annually, showcases the best urban destinations for international students. The index assesses cities for its University Rankings, Student Mix, Desirability, Employer Activity, Affordability, and Student View.

Key Observations:

Methodology

QS use six indicator groups to compile the ranking, each analyzing a different aspect of concern to prospective students.
