UCL pips oxford in uni world rankings
UCL surges past Britain’s oldest uni to fourth place in the QS World University rankings
UCL leapfrogged Oxford to become the second best university in Britain, and fourth in the world.
Only MIT, Harvard and Cambridge are higher in the QS world rankings, which are widely regarded as the most accurate league tables available.
With UCL and Imperial in the top ten and King’s rising one place to 26th, London consolidated its position of academic excellence.
The results – based on the opinion of 46,000 academics and 25,000 employers – mean UCL is the first uni to break the Oxbridge monopoly on the top two spots.
Oxford refused to comment on their stagnation in 5th place, saying: “we don’t normally comment on league tables.”
Both UCL and Kings lowered grade offers after hundreds of places remained available in mid-September.
One sixth former was accepted to read History with ABB, as opposed to the A* and As across the board required for the same course last year.
Let’s just hope standards are kept high enough for UCL to place above Oxford and Imperial again next year.
