Top Universities in the United Kingdom

Introduction

What are the most popular Universities in the United Kingdom? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing the 2019 UK University Ranking of 161 recognized UK higher-education institutions meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed and/or accredited by the appropriate UK higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of the top UK Universities based on valid, unbiased and non-influenceable web metrics provided by independent web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves.
