These are officially the best unis for each and every subject

Shook how many of these aren’t Oxbridge tbh


Few things can make up for the insidious sense that £9,250 a year for uni is a bit much. Being at the absolute best uni in the country for a certain subject is perhaps one.

Luckily, The Sunday Times has ranked each and every uni, figuring out who is best at every subject for its Good University Guide 2020.

Cambridge dominate, being ranked the best at 27 different subjects. Shockingly, Oxford tie with Loughborough and St Andrews on five subjects. Minnows Stirling, Strathclyde, and the University of the West of Scotland also feature.

But does your uni take the top spot for any subjects?
