Using data from the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (January 28, 2020) Top Five are: 1. City University of Hong Kong; 2. University of Hong Kong; 3. École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne; 4. ETH Zurich; 5. Chinese University of Hong Kong.
It is no surprise that Switzerland is home to some of the most international universities in the world, given that it is surrounded by five countries (France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein) and situated in the heart of Europe.
École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne has a particularly strong reputation in engineering with 13 engineering science programmes, and more recently it has become known for its work in the life sciences, as well as having strong computer science programmes. Students at the institution are given numerous opportunities to participate in exchange programmes with other universities in Switzerland and abroad. The university also offers an internship scheme for students enrolled at other internationally acclaimed universities to spend up to three months at one of its campus laboratories.
ETH Zurich is located in Switzerland's largest city, Zurich, which, although expensive, is known for being very safe. The main spoken language is Swiss German but the university also offers courses in English. The institution has more than 19,000 students from over 120 countries and is the top university in continental Europe. The university focuses on teaching and research in the STEM subjects, and 21 Nobel prizes have been awarded to students and teachers at the institution. One of the most famous alumni is Albert Einstein. (F: 2020 Times Higher Education Rankings)
