London has no less than five universities rated as having the best reputations in the world – more than any other city – according to the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2016 published earlier this month.

Four of these are Colleges of the University of London: UCL (20th), LSE (24th), King’s College London (43rd) and London Business School (between 81-90th). The fifth London-based university in the top 100 is Imperial College London (15th).

These 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 by LSE, plus undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Law (UCL, LSE, King’s).

The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2016 is based on the largest, invitation-only academic opinion poll carried out by Ipsos MediaCT for Times Higher Education’s rankings data supplier, Thomson Reuters. 

The 2016 results are based on a survey of more than 10,000 academics, across a range of discplines, from 133 countries.
