London has no less than four universities rated in the world’s top 40 institutions according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020 which were published yesterday.
Three of the four are member institutions of the University of London: UCL (15th), LSE (joint 27th) and King’s College London (joint 36th). The fourth London-based university in the world’s top 40 is Imperial College London (10th). The largest and most diverse university rankings to date, including almost 1,400 universities from 92 countries, they confirm London’s position as one of the world's premier cities for higher education.
The Times Higher Education Rankings represent the only global university performance table to judge world-class universities across all of their core missions – teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
