London has no less than four universities rated in the world’s top 40 institutions according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-2017 published yesterday.

Three of these are member institutions of the University of London: UCL (15th), LSE (25th) and King’s College London (36th). The fourth London-based university in the world’s top 40 is Imperial College London (8th). Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, said that London remained “one of the premier higher education cities in the world”.

The three University of London institutions 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 by LSE, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Law (UCL, LSE, King’s), plus the MSc in Professional Accountancy (UCL).
