The London School of Economics and Political Science is rated the fifth best university in the UK in a ranking published today by The Guardian newspaper.
LSE comes top of the table for career prospects and is the highest placed London university in The Guardian's University Guide 2010, ahead of UCL, Imperial and King's College London.
The guide assesses 117 universities from around the country, taking into account teaching quality, student satisfaction and career prospects.
LSE was also ranked first for graduate prospects in the Independent's Complete University Guide this April.
Janet Hartley, pro-director of Teaching and Learning said: 'League tables do not provide a complete picture of our strengths but it is pleasing that we are consistently ranked as one of the country's top universities. Our graduates are in great demand so it is gratifying to see this acknowledged.'
The guide rated Oxford University as the best in the country, with Cambridge, St Andrews and Warwick in second, third and fourth place respectively.
