UCL has come 10th place in the Sunday Times University Guide for 2016.

The guide, published today, says teaching at UCL is 125th lowest in the country – below our nobody neighbours University of West London and London South Bank.

The underwhelming news come days after the release of the QS World University rankings, which placed UCL 7th worldwide. QS weighs research especially highly.

Saving grace is UCL’s student-staff ratio, which is number one nationally. Just over ten underperforming nebbish staff serve every one of the university’s 30,000 students.
