Top 5 universities in Europe | teachingonline.net
1. University of Oxford
There is no specific date to mark the beginning of the University of Oxford but it is thought that it was established some time in the 13th century. Since then, it has become one of the most prestigious universities in the world. However, women were not admitted to the university until 1878, and it wasn’t until 1920 that women were awarded degrees. The last of the all-male colleges began to accept women in 1974.
The university has the largest library system in the UK with more than 11 million volumes. There are also a number of museums and galleries including the Ashmolean, which is the oldest museum in the UK and the oldest university museum in the world. It holds significant collections and works from artists such as Michelangelo, Turner and Picasso.
2. University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge is a public research university in the UK, established in the 13th century.
The university, like many other well-established institutions, has many traditions. Until 1909, a metre-long wooden spoon was presented to the student with the lowest passing honours grade in the final examinations of the mathematical tripos (one of the courses available at the university). The spoon is now on display in St John’s College.
Imperial College London is the only university in the UK to focus entirely on science, engineering, medicine and business.
The university has aimed to strengthen its ties with the rest of Europe by investing more than €15 million (£13 million) in new grants for researchers in all four faculties, launching a European Partners Fund to help develop new collaborations with European colleagues and working with the EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation to discuss ways of strengthening European research ties.
