According to rankings released by the Times Higher Education magazine, Turkey's Bogazici University has shifted from 276th to 199th place and become the first Turkish university to rank among the world's top 200 universities.
The Times Higher Education University Rankings 2013-14 were released on Wednesday. The rankings are compiled in collaboration with Thomson Reuters and evaluate the performance of universities based on a variety of criteria such as teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
Turkey has five universities in the top 100 universities in Asia according to a ranking released last week by the magazine.
Turkey's Bogazici took 20th place in the Asia ranking and other Turkish universities in the top 100 were Middle East Technical University (ODTU), Bilkent University, Koc University and İstanbul Technical University (İTÜ), while Japan's University of Tokyo holds the top spot in the Asia ranking.
The World University Rankings were still dominated by the United States and Britain, which together held the top 13 spots and more than half of the top 200.
The United States had 77 of the top 200 and the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) took the top spot for the second year in a row.
Britain hosted 31 of the top 200, with London alone home to more leading universities -- six -- than Japan or South Korea, which have five and four, respectively.
