Top World University Ranking 2016-2017
There is no scarcity of educational institutions worldwide. The choice of universities/colleges will also depend on your preferences, personal circumstances, your educational level, budget, visas, and what you want to achieve in the future among other things. Studying in a university that is ranked way below in the list will not make you any less in my opinion. Education is education, but you might need to work harder to prove yourself to your employer unless you want to be self-employed.
Education is a no regret investment and you should not think twice about it but my only advice is search well the universities in your preferred destination or worldwide in every aspect and then decide if it is worth going to that university or go for another one.
