SHANGHAI Jiao Tong University is the first higher education institution in the city to enter the world's 200 best, according to a ranking to be released today by the university.

Chinese universities have taken 42 spots in the top 500 in the 2012 Academic Ranking of World Universities, compared with 35 last year. Among the 42 universities, 28 are based on the Chinese mainland, five more than last year. Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Zhejiang University rank among the world's top 200.

China overtakes the United Kingdom, which has 38 universities in the Top 500, and becomes second in the world in terms of the number of universities joining the list. However, no Chinese university is ranked among the top 100 yet.

It's followed by Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Cambridge, Caltech, Princeton, Columbia, Chicago and Oxford. UK has two universities in the top 10.
