Four UK universities named in QS World University Rankings 2022 Top 10

09 June 2021

The 2022 QS World University Rankings were published this week, with the University of Oxford moving up three places to 2nd overall in the world. 

In total, five UK universities made the top 20, with the University of Cambridge ranking joint third, whilst Imperial College London and University College London rose to seventh and joint eighth respectively, and the University of Edinburgh finished 16th, a rise of four places from last year. Of the 90 UK universities ranked by QS for 2022, 28 improved their position over the last year.

Jack Moran, a QS Spokesman, said: “British universities – among them London’s finest – have enjoyed some impressive gains in this year’s table, and these gains are largely driven by outstanding global recognition and research impact."

The QS rankings are regarded as the most highly respected of the various international league tables. Methodology is based on employer and academic reputation, class sizes, research output and international staff and students numbers.
