Despite still being dominated by American and British Institutions, this year’s results continue to showcase a gradual increase in Asian Universities’ presence, with 19 institutions from the continent ranked in the top 100 list, from a total of 12 institutions in 2020’s list: 7 universities from China, 5 from Hong Kong, 3 from South Korea, 2 from Japan and Singapore.

Overall, we see that 26 European Universities make their way into the top 100 list, among which 9 are from Germany, 7 from the Netherlands, 4 from France and Switzerland (respectively) and lastly 1 from Belgium and Sweden each.
