University College London ranked the best in the world for Education

20 December 2021

University College London has been named the best university in the world for Education by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021.

It is the 8th year in a row that the UCL Institute of Education has maintained its position as the best in the world for Education. Expert teaching and leading-edge research make courses such as the Child Development MSc, Education MA and Primary Education (4-12) MA such popular programmes for international learners.

Professor David Price, UCL Vice-Provost (Research), said: “I am delighted to see UCL recognised once again as one of the world’s top universities. Whilst each league table is different, emphasising various elements of success, the results of these subject rankings highlight the sheer breadth of UCL’s expertise and commitment to excellence - even and especially during these challenging times – and for that we should be very proud.”

The QS Subject Rankings score universities around the world on their reputation with academics and employers, as well as research impact. The rankings use data from 1,453 institutions and nearly 14 million unique papers.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
