The capital continues to be the global leader in education, innovating and inspiring top talent from both across the country and overseas

Confirming London's position as a global leader in higher education, three University of London Colleges - UCL, LSE and King’s College London - feature in the top 30 of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16, which were published yesterday.

All three Colleges improved their rankings this year, with UCL moving up to 14th (from 22nd last year), LSE moving up to 23rd (from 34th), and King’s moving up to 27th (from 40th). Imperial College London similarly improved its position, moving up one place to rank 8th.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “The capital continues to be the global leader in education, innovating and inspiring top talent from both across the country and overseas.”

The three constituent Colleges of the University of London provide academic direction for a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered through the University of London International Programmes: the suite of undergraduate programmes in Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences, with academic direction from LSE, plus undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Law (UCL, LSE, King’s). UCL also provides academic input for the new MSc in Professional Accountancy.
