UCL soars in rankings to become top uni in London

Oh and we’re 7th in the world too


This morning saw the release of the QS World University Rankings, and we’ve been branded the best university in the UK outside of Oxbridge.

We’ve left the local poly’s quivering in our intellectual shadow with a score of 97.2 compared with Imperial’s 96.1, King’s’ 91.0 and LSE’s 86.2. Overall London killed it though, and the capital is the only city in the world with 4 universities in the top 50.

Despite dropping from last year’s fifth position, we’ve smashed it on a domestic stage and are ranked third in the UK overall, for Arts and Humanities and Life Sciences and Medicine.

“I’m not complaining though.”
