The London School of Economics and Political Science has been ranked as the third best university in the UK and the top university in London according to the newly-merged The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014.
Using the old Times Good University Guide as a comparison, this is the third year in a row that LSE has been rated as the top university in the capital.
Individual subjects have also done particularly well in the new league table. LSE tops the social policy subject table, and comes second in anthropology and economics.
The Times and The Sunday Times have produced separate university guides since 1993 and 1998 respectively. This year, the new, combined Good University Guide is intended to “provide the most comprehensive guide to higher education in Britain.”
LSE Director Professor Craig Calhoun said:
“We are delighted that LSE’s commitment to world-class teaching and research is reflected in this guide as in the full range of university rankings. We continually invest both energy and resources in improving our facilities, our faculty, and the experience of our terrific students.”
