Oxford is a fantastic institution, filled with incredibly talented staff members and a rich architectural and academic history. This however, is not enough for it to deserve a number one times ranking position. The teaching style is outdated, and the lack of technological modernisation means students suffer to keep up. There is a lack of cohesion due to the individually-operating colleges, and an inefficient monetary spend for the same reason. Oxford could be great, but isn’t yet. It’s prestige is still the predominant reason people attend.
