"The rankings restate London’s position as one of the premier higher education cities in the world"

London has no less than four universities rated in the world’s top 40 institutions according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021 which were published last week.

Three of the four are member institutions of the University of London: UCL (16th), LSE (27th) and King’s College London (35th). The fourth London-based university in the world’s top 40 is Imperial College London (11th). The rankings restate London’s position as one of the premier higher education cities in the world.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021 include more than 1,500 universities across 93 countries and regions, making them the largest and most diverse university rankings to date.

The rankings are based on 13 performance indicators that measure an institution’s performance across four areas: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
