The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is the only Israeli institution of higher learning to be ranked in a new survey as one of the world's 100 leading universities just published in Newsweek magazine. Most of the others are the most prestigious universities in the US, Europe and the Far East, with the top three slots held by Harvard, Stanford and Yale Universities. HU was ranked 82nd in the list, placing ahead of some of America's and Europe's largest and oldest universities. It was also the only university in the Middle East to be chosen in the world's top 100 - even though its president has warned of the danger of slipping due to annual government cuts to university budgets.
