Four London unis ranked in global top 100 in The Times World University Rankings

UCL has ranked 22nd in the world

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2023 has just been released, and four London universities made the top 100 worldwide.

Imperial tops all London unis by being amongst the top 10 globally, while UCL, King’s, and LSE follow suit at the 22nd, 33th, and 35th places.

Other major London unis are also ranked fairly well, with 12 London unis amongst the top 50 in the UK.

The Times ranking included 1,799 global institutions and claims to be the “largest and most diverse university rankings to date.”

Oxford managed to top the worldwide list for the seventh year in a roll, while Cambridge and Imperial found their places amongst the global top 10.

Aside from overall performance, The Times also ranked unis in areas like teaching, international outlook, and research.

Imperial tops the list for London unis for most of the individual aspects. But smaller, specialist universities like Royal Veterinary College are also seen flying up the rankings for areas that showcase their disciplinary strengths, like industry income.
