    Universities in the UK are leading the way in maths, English, history and art, according to annual rankings.

   Following analysis of subject strength at world institutions, major global league tables have revealed that UK universities provide the best courses in eight of the 42 subjects analysed.

   Four universities feature in the top placed rankings, including the University of Oxford, which leads in four subjects, and the University of Cambridge, which leads three.

  The Royal College of Art, which was given a major boost last week by George Osborne, the Chancellor, with £54 million in funding for its new campus in Battersea, is ranked as the world’s best university for art and design, while the Institute of Education University College London retains its status as world-leading for education.

   However, the rankings were dominated by US universities, with Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) topping the tables in 24 subjects between them.

   Published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), researchers garnered the opinions of 76,798 academics and 44,426 employers to inform the results, alongside the analysis of 28.5 million research papers.

   Results of the research saw UK universities secure eight first place rankings, 16 second-place rankings and 21 third-place rankings, with increases in both academic and employer reputation.

   Commenting on the rankings, Ben Sowter, head of the QS Intelligence Unit, said: "Though the US and UK remain dominant, our most inclusive rankings ever show that excellence can be found in an ever-increasing number of places.

   "Nations like Austria, South Africa, Finland, Brazil, China, and Sweden can be found in the top ten of our tables. Our new top 100 for performing arts acknowledges academic excellence in 27 different countries and regions, while our top 100 for mineral engineering recognises 26 countries and regions.”

    So early education is very important, we must not only provide a good living environment, but also provide a good educational environment for children. Our practical  children's educational products is very consistent with the needs of children, point reading pen story, flat.
