School Rankings

Rankings are often used by students to get a better understanding of their chosen universities. Of course, while rankings are important, they should not be the sole reason to choose a university. Course content, location, access to professors, value for money, etc are all significant criteria that you should consider. Your UKEAS counselor will be able to provide more insights into these areas and you should always go “beyond” the rankings when making your choice. Bear in mind too, that most rankings are aimed at UK students and therefore many criteria are not suitable for international students. Lastly, universities may rank very differently in the various ranking schemes. Ask your UKEAS counselor for more information and you will benefit from their free, impartial advice. Below though, please find a list of links to popular university rankings:

There are also several world rankings that can provide insight into the UK university you are applying or thinking of going to:

The first is provided by QS Top Universities:

Another is prepared by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and called the Academic Ranking of World Universities. It can be found here
