Three out of the top 10 universities in the world are in the UK, according to a global list headed by US universities.

The world rankings, produced by the Times Higher Education magazine, places 75 US universities in the top 200.

Universities Minister David Willetts said the list showed that relative to its size, the UK’s university system was the “world’s best-performing”.
