The 2018 QS World University Rankings list was recently released, and we are very excited to announce that seven of the top 10 universities in the world are edX partners!

EdX founding universities MIT and Harvard University took spots in the top three on the list, with edX partners Caltech, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, University of Chicago and ETH Zurich also appearing in the top ten. Even more edX partners appear on the full list.

QS ranks universities according to six key metrics including academic reputation, employer reputation, teaching quality and research output in order to effectively capture university performance.

We are very proud to work with the world’s most prestigious universities to achieve our mission of increasing access to high-quality education for all learners, everywhere. Congratulations to our partners for all of your incredible work!
