LSE ranked as top university in London and third in the UK

OrientationThe London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has maintained its ranking as third best university in the UK and London’s leading institution in the Complete University Guide league tables for 2016.

The Guide assesses the UK’s 126 universities using markers such as student satisfaction and graduate prospects. LSE is named third in the UK, behind Cambridge and Oxford and the top university in London. The School is also placed in the top ten for eleven of the twelve subjects it offers.

Professor Craig Calhoun, Director of LSE, said:

 “LSE prides itself on both its academic excellence and its investment in its students so it is gratifying to have LSE’s commitment to world-class teaching and research reflected in these rankings. Regardless of league tables, we will continue to invest in our facilities, our faculty and the overall student experience.”
