One month left of dead season. How about some good university news?

The California Golden Bears can again pride themselves on having an education from a top six worldwide university. According to Times Higher Education, UC Berkeley places sixth after Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Cambridge, and Oxford.

Cal has stayed in the top six all seven years and seems like it’ll stay in that place for quite some time. Cal also finished sixth last season. Cal also sports the highest female to male ratio (52:48) of the top six universities (all other five universities have more males than females), while sporting the lowest number of international students (16%) and highest number of students (34,834).

Despite all the budget cuts and foreign influx, the University of California primarily remains a place that brings tons of the best in-state students to do great things in the world!

Here’s more on the methodology.

The reputation rankings are based on a survey of more than 10,000 academics worldwide, are just seven years old, and this is the seventh time Berkeley has placed in the “elite six.” All six scored far higher than the other universities by Times Higher Education, the United Kingdom’s leading educational news publication. The reputation rankings are separate from THE‘s annual World University Rankings, which come out in the fall.

Go Bears!
