The London School of Economics and Political Science has been ranked as the top university in London and the UK’s fourth best university in the 2012 Guardian University Guide, a rise of four places compared to its position in the 2011 guide.
The result is particularly notable as the Guardian rankings do not take into account research quality, an area where LSE performs very strongly.
Professor Judith Rees, Director of LSE, said:
"We are very pleased with being rated as the top university in London, especially as the Guardian rankings tend to be focused on teaching and the student experience. As this guide and others have shown, the School invests significant resources to improve our facilities and the overall student experience, while our graduates continue to have outstanding job prospects and starting salaries."
