Oxford University kept a record being ranked on top of the Times Higher Education world university rankings by beating the California Institute of Technology, the top performer since the past five years.

However, UK’s decision to leave the European Union could destabilise UK’s higher education sector.

BBC, Editor of the rankings Phil Baty said it was “fantastic news” Oxford had come top, but the UK’s vote to leave the European Union was a big threat to the sector.

“The referendum result is already causing uncertainty for the sector,” he said.

“As well as some top academics reporting they have been frozen out of collaborative research projects with EU colleagues, many are admitting that they might look to relocate to a university outside the country.”

“It is also having an impact on the UK’s potential to attract international talent in the future”, he said.
