Third in the UK and on the up

UCL is 16th in the 2017 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings, making them third in the UK. The rankings are based on both research and teaching.

Oxford and Cambridge have the top UK spots, coming in at joint fourth in the world. Like last year, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford have the top three scores.
