UK University Ranking 2013

Find the Most Suitable UK Universities with Subject Ranking Tables

For many students and parents, the UK university ranking published by the TIMES Good University Guide is a major reference when choosing their course of study. The ranking evaluates UK universities by criteria such as student satisfaction, research quality, entry standards, student-staff ratio and graduate prospect.

In 2013, there are no significant changes in the top 10s, as they are still dominated by traditional universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics (LSE) and Imperial College. Up 7 places this year, the University of Glasgow is the only one that has progressed into top 20.

The Importance of Subject Ranking

When looking at the overall ranking table, students should be aware that it is based on overall performance of the universities, and therefore may not necessarily reflect a university’s strength in a specific subject area. For many reasons, some universities that are leading in a specific subject area might be ranked relatively low in the overall ranking table. This phenomenon is more common in newly developed subjects (such as hospitality and tourism management). For students who already have a desired subject in mind, subject ranking tables will be a better reference.
