5. University of Mumbai, Mumbai, India
Founded in 1857, Mumbai University was modelled on the great British universities. The original campus is the Fort Campus with its Neo-Gothic buildings. The arches, spiral staircases and turrets are reminiscent of Oxford but the palm trees tell you that you’re definitely in warmer climes. The Rajabai Clock Tower is one of the main landmarks of not only the campus but also of Mumbai city. Inspired by Big Ben, the tower fuses Neo-Gothic design with elements of the Venetian style. It has a stunning stained-glass window.
