Google university ranking?

Google has revealed the most popular searches for people around the world looking for universities.

This ranking of online searches is very different from the traditional rankings of universities. There is a strong interest in online courses, rather than traditional campus-based universities, says Google. There are five Indian institutions in the top 20 of most searched-for universities.

The top search worldwide is for the University of Phoenix, a US-based, for-profit university, with many online courses and a sometimes controversial record on recruitment.

Five UK universities feature in the top 20. Interestingly, LSE and UCL are more searched for than the higher ranked and more well-known universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
