10. University College London (UCL) 倫敦大學學院
Moving up three places in the rankings, UCL has certainly stepped up. High-quality research is key for their undergraduate teaching, where the most up-to-date ideas are embedded into their programmes. England’s third oldest university (established in 1826) is well known for arts & humanities subjects, sciences & medicine, as well as engineering and tech.
In just slightly more than 50 years, Lancaster has established itself as one of the UK’s elite universities. It is here where world-leading research, excellent career prospects, and a beautiful campus with award-winning facilities are experienced. Lancaster is best known for its Marketing Programme, as well as Social Work, Design & Art, Linguistics, Communication & Media Studies, Accounting & Finance, and Business Management.
Earning a reputation for independent thinking & academic excellence both regionally and internationally, Warwick is regarded as one of the UK’s leading research universities. Standing out for its History and Arts & Humanities Programmes, as well as Business & Management.
Founded in 1909 as a small technical institute, Loughborough is now one of the country’s largest single-site campuses with over 438 acres of land. Ranking top in courses for Art & Design, Engineering & Tech, and Real Estate!
Founded in 1832, Durham is England’s third oldest Higher Education Institute. The university offers one of the broadest ranges of degree programmes in the UK. Out of the 140 undergraduate programmes on offer, the most prominent courses include Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts, and Business.
As mentioned in our previous article, St. Andrews is Scotland’s oldest university. In fact, it is the third oldest English speaker university in the world. A unique blend of old and new, this traditional environment with state-of-the-art facilities has satisfied students from all walks of life. Boasting elite programmes with their Psychology, Literature, Chemistry, and Veterinary Science!
An institution responsible for breakthrough research including the discovery of penicillin, holography, and fibre optics. Clearly a Higher Education Institution that separates itself from the rest, and it is here where the best Engineering, Science, Health, and Technology courses in Europe are taught.
As the name suggests, economics is a staple course at LSE, being one of the most advanced on a global scale. However, the university also proves to thrive in other courses, such as Anthropology, Criminology, International Relations, Social Psychology, and Sociology programmes. In fact, LSE is responsible for 35 world leaders and 16 Nobel Prize winners (in the fields of economics, peace, and literature).
The oldest university in the English speaking world, teaching has been taking place at Oxford since 1096! Many Oxford academics are international experts in their chosen fields in all disciplines of the sciences and arts, and an academic focus is placed on their courses as opposed to a vocational direction. In particular, Oxford’s strengths lie within their Engineering & Technology, Life Sciences & Medicine, Natural Sciences, Arts & Humanities, and Social Science programmes.
Was your guess correct? Number one on the list is none other than Cambridge University, maintaining its status as the UK’s best Higher Education Institution. The university was founded in 1209 and has a global reputation for outstanding academic achievement and world-class research. Gaining entry into this university is certainly no easy task (in fact none of the universities mentioned on this list can be considered “easy”!), but Cambridge go the extra mile to make it all that more selective. Nobel Prize winners, world leaders, world-changing inventors, Cambridge has it all. Similarly to Oxford, Cambridge’s strengths lie within their Engineering & Technology, Life Sciences & Medicine, Natural Sciences, Arts & Humanities, and Social Science programmes!
