Glasgow is the ninth best university in the UK

Well done us


Glasgow is the ninth best university in the UK, according to the latest global rankings by U.S. News.

Glasgow’s overall score of 65.6 out of 100 is enough to place it above the likes of Leeds, Birmingham and (of course) Strathclyde.

Only one other Scottish uni, Edinburgh, makes the top ten in the UK.

Ninth best academically, clearly the best-looking though
