When it comes to education, nothing but the best is what every deserving student wants. Here we share the list of top 10 universities in the world released by the Center for World University Rankings (2015). CWUR uses eight strong parameters to determine the rankings including quality of education, quality of faculty, alumni employment, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents.
