Top Public Universities in the United Kingdom

Introduction

What are the most popular Public Universities in the United Kingdom? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing a complete list of top Public UK Universities ranked by the 2020 uniRank University Ranking and meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed 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 Public 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.
