The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has been ranked among the top universities in the UK for research quality and graduate prospects.
The rankings, published by the Complete University Guide for 2019, also rated LSE third in the country overall and number one in London for the seventh year running.
LSE placed second in the country for research quality ahead of the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge and King’s College London.
The classification uses data from the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) to develop an average score based on the standard of research conducted.
LSE was also ranked fourth in the country for graduate prospects, up one place from last year.
Deriving data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), prospects are determined by measuring the employability of an institution’s first degree graduates.
The response of LSE Director Minouche Shafik was covered in a recent LSE News article.
