The new ranking of National Higher Education 2012 :

  1. United State
  2. Sweden
  3. Canada
  4. Finland
  5. Denmark
  6. Switzerland
  7. Norway
  8. Australia
  9. Netherlands
  10. United Kingdom

The ranking is based on research at the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research (University of Melbourne) on 20 different measures critical to what makes a ‘good’ Higher Education system, grouped under four umbrella headings:

  • resources (investment by government and private sector),
  • output (research and its impact, as well as the production of an educated workforce which meets labour market needs),
  • connectivity (international networks and collaboration which protects a system against insularity) and
  • environment (government policy and regulation, diversity and participation opportunities).

The ranking is organised by Universitas 21, a global network of research universities.
