Cool quiz though with a few odd exceptions I doubt anyone has heard of most of these past the top 4. Almost every internationally noteworthy university in the world is in the USA, plus a few in the UK, and a handful scattered around Europe, Canada, and the far East. You can get a lot of them just by guessing big cities, though.

Bit annoyed Sao Paolo didn't work especially given that that's the right spelling and Sao Paulo is wrong

I put TUM for ' Technische Universitaet Muenchen' but it didn't work. Any other way to do it besides typing it all out?
