UK University Rankings 2019

Factors to consider when choosing a UK University

UK University rankings are highly competitive. There are over 150 higher education institutions to choose from in the UK, and it is important you have all the information on where to go and what to study before applying. Some significant factors to consider when choosing a UK University include:

  • University ranking: There are multiple ranking agencies and sites that rank UK Universities such as The Times and Sunday Times, The Complete University Guide, THE World University Rankings, QS Top Universities, Webometrics and more
  • Subject ranking: This is the key (our recommendation). Difference between a rank 3 or a rank 4 University in the UK may not be much. It is however the department for your subject that determines how good a University will be for you thanks to factors like Professors teaching, research undertaken, access to facilities, etc.
  • Location: Location can a very important factor in the UK. You may prefer to study in London, a big city or some other cities like Manchester, Cardiff, NewCastle, etc. where the life may not be as quick paced as London. Larger cities like London can provide great access to industry connections that one can make helps in the future career. Besides, in the UK, weather can play a very important role
  • Cost of living in the UK: Living cost in London could be a couple thousand pounds higher than living in a smaller city
  • Student satisfaction: Students should connect with current and past students to learn about the overall satisfaction during their study and stay in the UK while at a particular University. Special point should be made here that all students have different kinds of goals when selecting a particular University. Thus, asking more than one student would help while taking feedback
  • Research ranking: Students who are keen on doing research should read about the Professors’s work and the research undertaken by the Universities in the UK they are applying to. Some UK Universities may only be best known for their taught Masters
  • Percentage of international students: Most Universities will have this statistic on their website

Note: UK officially does not have a ranking system. However, there are various ranking systems conducted by world bodies based on varied factors.

Among different ranking systems, The Complete University Guide’s University League Table and The Times and Sunday Times are considered the most trusted indicators of UK University. Over a 100 UK Universities are ranked by these ranking systems.
