The top 10 ranked institutions include Harvard University, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Stanford University.

Arizona State University has been recognized by Times Higher Education (THE) as one of the top 100 most powerful global universities for research and teaching.

The World Reputation Rankings 2018 surveyed more than 10,000 leading academics from 137 countries, the statement said.

UCD was ranked 28th among all universities in the United States and 13th among public USA universities.

Meanwhile, India features in the table for the first time since 2011, with its flagship institution, the Indian Institute of Science, making the 91-100 banding.

Baty said: “All UK universities have either fallen down the global pecking order this year or stayed static.

Kerala to cut taxes on petrol, diesel to reduce retail prices
That reduction followed rates touching an all-time high of ₹78.43 per litre for petrol and ₹69.31 for diesel in Delhi on May 29. A "technical glitch" on the website of Indian Oil Corporation ( IOC ) led to a huge criticism of the government on Wednesday.

THE says that a university's brand is vital for attracting talent, strategic partners, philanthropy and investment. But their status is in no way guaranteed - all United Kingdom universities have either fallen down the global pecking order this year or stayed static.

Other US schools in the top 20 were the California Institute of Technology, Columbia, the University of MI, the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell. "However, this new data shows just how hard it is for emerging powers to break into the traditional global elite", he said.

The latest QS World University Rankings placed Tsinghua University and Peking University in 25th and 38th places respectively.

THE described performance across the rest of the region as mixed: “Notably, Australia loses some ground.” While the University of Melbourne fell one place from 46 to joint 47, and the University of Sydney dropped from the 61-70 band to the 71-80 bracket, its third representative, Australian National University, held its position in the 61-70 band.

Mr Baty said: "The UK has some of the most prestigious universities in the world, admired across the continents". Fudan University, University of Science and Technology of China and Shanghai Jiao Tong University all ranked in the 81-90 slot.

The rankings and data collected in the survey will be considered when THE develops the World University Rankings for 2019, which will be released in September 2018.
