Imperial is the THIRD greatest uni in the UK

We came 15th in the whole world

Imperial College London has been ranked as the third greatest uni in the country based on its reputation.

The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings placed Imperial just behind Oxbridge, out of 10 British universities that made the cut. This is great news for Imperial, but it’s also the second year running we’re third in what is arguably the most important rankings.

We also ranked 15th in the world, slipping just one place since last year. And to top it off, we were the top London uni – beating UCL, LSE, King’s and the London Business School. We also beat Edinburgh, Manchester and Warwick.

THE editor Phil Baty said: “Reputation is the global currency of higher education. It may be subjective, it may not always be fair, but it matters deeply.”

The UK had 10 universities overall in the top 100, as Bristol and Durham slipped out this year. We came second only to the US.
