For a taste of what’s on offer, here’s a look at the top universities in London:-
1. Imperial College London
After a few particularly successful years in the rankings, Imperial College London reached its highest position yet this year. This science and technology-focused institution is well known for its leadership in engineering and natural sciences, as well as having a prestigious business school and one of the UK’s largest medical faculties.
2. University College London (UCL)
Previously the highest-ranked among universities in London, until Imperial’s recent leap, University College London (UCL) maintains a strong position in the world. It’s again extremely popular with international students, who account for more than a third of the student body.
3. King's College London
Having enjoyed several years of improved rankings performance, King’s College London (KCL) this year climbed a further three places to rank 16th in the world, consolidating its place in the global top 20. Again, this comprehensive research-led university is a popular choice for international students, while postgraduates make up around 40% of its 26,000 students.
4. London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
The UK’s only university specializing in the social sciences, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) ranks 71= in the world this year. It gets a much higher position in many of the individual subject rankings, reflecting its role as a world-leading pioneer in subjects such as international relations, politics, sociology, law and accounting. Another highly international institution, LSE boasts more than 100 languages spoken on campus.
5. Queen Mary, University of London
Climbing 17 places to rank 98th in the world this year, Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) offers teaching and research across a wide range of subjects, including medicine and dentistry at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
6. Royal Holloway, University of London
While many of the top universities in London are centrally located, some are much further out. Situated in the town of Egham, Royal Holloway, University of London is just under an hour’s train journey from central London. Perfect for students looking to combine a more suburban experience with the choice of popping into the city for nights out or day trips, Royal Holloway offers one of the most beautiful and historic campuses in the UK.
7. School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS)
Currently ranked 331= in the world, the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) focuses on the languages, cultures and societies of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East – the only institution in Europe specialized in this field. Just over half of its students come from outside the UK, representing more than 130 countries.
8. City University London
City University London (ranked 341=) is named to reflect its close relationship with ‘The City’ – London’s historic financial district, also known as ‘the square mile’. It prides itself on having strong links with leading companies in this competitive district, ranging from giants of the financial services sector to media companies and medical research centers.
9. Brunel University
Named after the Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Brunel University (ranked 355=) is particularly known for its engineering and design courses, but also offers a range of courses in arts, business, law, health and social sciences, information systems and sport.
