LSE comes top in London

The latest university rankings have rated LSE as the best university in London.

Using a variety of measures such as research quality, graduate prospects and student satisfaction, The Complete University Guide 2014 has ranked LSE as the top university in the capital and third best UK university overall, behind Oxford and Cambridge.

In terms of subjects, the Guide rates the School as the best place in the UK to study social policy and joint-best for economics and philosophy. All subjects offered by LSE were ranked the top ten and most were in the top five.

The Guide also ranks LSE as the joint-top institution in the UK in terms of research quality.

Professor Craig Calhoun, Director of LSE, said

“Producing excellent research and teaching is central to the School’s mission but we are also pleased that, as these rankings indicate, so many of our students go on to fulfilling careers. Of course, there is more to a university than what can be captured in a league table, but it is always nice to have the hard work of our staff and students recognised.”
