Top Universities in the United Kingdom

Introduction

What are the most popular Universities in the United Kingdom? EduListing tries to answer this question by publishing the 2020 UK University Ranking of 161 UK higher-education institutions meeting the following EduListing 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 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.
