London comes out top in world university rankings
Universities in London go from strength to strength, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-2014.
London has no less than four universities in the top 40 of the global rankings, more than any other city in the world. Three of these are Colleges of the University of London: UCL (21st), LSE (32nd) and King’s College London (38th). LSE provides the academic direction for a range of BSc undergraduate degrees we offer, while UCL and King's are two of the six Colleges that collectively provide academic direction for our Undergraduate Laws Programme. The fourth London-based university in the top 40 is Imperial College London (10th).
With two other University of London Colleges also featuring in the top 200 – Royal Holloway, University of London (102nd) and Queen Mary, University of London (114th) – the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, commented: “These rankings testify to London’s strength in higher education and to our lengthening lead over European rivals."
