Brazil has outshined many of its Latin American neighbors in Times Higher Education’s Latin America University Ranking, claiming 23 of the top 50 slots for best universities in the region.

The country also claims half the top ten places, with the University of São Paulo and the State University of Campinas in first and second place, respectively.

Carolina Guzmán-Valenzuela, researcher at the Center for Advanced Research in Education at the University of Chile, said that Brazil’s success reflects its high research outputs, high production of patents, and high R&D spending.

Javier Botero Álvarez from the World Bank added that Brazil’s public universities have large amounts of funding from the state and a selective student recruitment process, helping the country excel.
