Also among the top ten from the European universities was the University of Oxford from Great Britain (7th). The University of Copenhagen kept the best ranking (30th) of the Nordic universities.

Of the Finnish universities, five were ranked among the top 500. The most successful was the University of Helsinki which was 56th in the ranking. The University of Eastern Finland was ranked among the 301–400 best Universities, and Aalto University and the University of Oulu were placed in the 401–500 category.

The ranking is published annually by ShanghaiRanking Consultancy, and it is compiled by the Jiao Tong University which was placed in the 101–150 category in this year's ranking. The so-called Shanghai ranking has been published since 2003. There are over 10,000 universities in the world.
