LSE ranked as UK's second best university

The first major university guide of the year has ranked LSE as the second best university in the UK and the best university in London.

The Complete University Guide sees LSE rising from fourth in last year's 2012 rankings to second for this year.

The Guide also places LSE in the top ten for all twelve of the subjects it offers and is rated as the top place in the UK to study Accounting and Finance, Economics and Social Policy. 

Professor Janet Hartley, pro director for teaching and learning at LSE said:

"We are pleased that LSE is highly regarded in so many areas, including both teaching and research quality. The School puts a lot of energy and investment into the student experience as well as making sure we keep producing some of the very best social science research in the world. We are also delighted that so many of our students go on to the rewarding jobs which they deserve. Although league tables come with a health warning, it is always nice to be appreciated."
