BRAZIL dominates the QS Latin American rankings for the second year, with 65 institutions in the top 250, led by the Universidad de Sao Paulo.
Mexico has 46 in the top 250, followed by Colombia with 34 and Chile with 30. Chile also has four in the top 10 – two more than last year – despite student unrest over fee rises.
“Chilean universities perform very well in terms of research output, and have an outstanding reputation among academics and employers,” QS head of research Ben Sowter said in a statement.
