King’s is the seventh greatest university in the country

We came 43rd in the whole world

King’s has been ranked as the seventh greatest uni in the country based on its reputation.

The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings placed King’s ahead of Manchester out of 10 British universities that made the cut.

We also ranked 43rd in the world, slipping 12 places since last year.

THE editor Phil Baty said: “Reputation is the global currency of higher education. It may be subjective, it may not always be fair, but it matters deeply.”

The UK had 10 universities overall in the top 100, as Bristol and Durham slipped out this year. We came second only to the US.
