Ever wonder how the world’s top universities stack up against one another? According to a source that focuses on the subject, the rankings of top schools contains some institutions you are probably familiar with, but have made some notable movements.

Times Higher Education, a London magazine that tracks the higher education market, released its 13th annual list of the top-ranked schools today. For the first time, the number one spot is not held by a university located in the United States. For a closer look at the top-10 schools in the world, check out our slideshow below.

For the past several years, the number one position has been held by the California Institute of Technology. This year the school fell to second place and was replaced by the renowned University of Oxford in the UK. California’s Stanford University took the third spot, as it did last year.

Moving into the top 10 was the University of California At Berkeley, which tied the University of Chicago for tenth place. Aside from Oxford, the only non-U.S. schools among the upper echelon were the U.K.’s University of Cambridge (fourth), Imperial College London (eighth) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (eighth).

Half of the top 50 schools on this latest ranking are held by schools within the United States, including seven of the top 10. Phil Baty, the editor of the Times Higher Education (THE) ranking, announced in a statement: “Of the US’s 63 representatives in the top 200 (the same number as last year), 31 have risen. Almost two-thirds of these 20 are public institutions, and a further 10 have remained steady. The US also has two more representatives in the top 100—41 compared to 39. The results suggest that the US’s public universities have been successfully weathering the storm of funding cuts, following dips in their rankings progress in the last couple of years.”

One trend THE sees on the horizon is the ascent of Asian universities. “Although the notion of Asia as the ‘next higher education superpower’ has become something of a cliché in recent years, the continent’s rise in the rankings is real and growing,” said Baty, as part of the release of THE’s results. “Overall, 290 Asian universities from 24 countries make the ranking and an elite 19 land in the top 200.”

The highest ranking Asian educational institutions this year include National University of Singapore, which placed 24th, and China’s Peking University, which came in 29th place, and Tsinghua University, ranked 35th. Japan’s University of Toyko placed 39th.

Unlike Forbes own ranking of top college, which focus on schools in the United States and gauges return on investment, Times High Education looks to institutions around the world, basing its scoring on their performance in teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

According to THE, the performance indicators include a school’s learning environment, volume of research, income and reputation; research influence; and the international scope of its staff, students and research. Universities are excluded if they do not teach under­graduates or if their research output amounted to fewer than 1,000 articles between 2011 and 2015. They can also be excluded if 80% or more of their research is focused on a narrow field of study.
