A new report says British universities have slipped down international rankings.

A new report says British universities have slipped down the latest international rankings.

According to the QS World University Rankings, among British universities only Cambridge has made its way into the top five institutions in the world.

One of the main casualties was London’s Imperial College which ranked equal second with Cambridge in 2014. However the college dropped to eight position due to a change in the methodology used to rate universities.

Meanwhile, Oxford Universities and University College London have slipped down the rankings.

They had ranked equal fifth last year but this year, Oxfor slipped to sixth and UCL to seventh. Kings College London which ranked 16th in 2014 has dropped three places to 19.

The top five list of QS World University Rankings is mainly dominated by US universities.
