Choosing a UK university

UK university rankings and league tables 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. Important factors to consider when choosing a UK university include:

  • University ranking
  • Subject ranking
  • Location
  • Cost of living
  • Student satisfaction
  • Research ranking
  • Percentage of international students

The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide is considered the most trusted quality indicator of undergraduate study at UK universities, and the 131 universities ranked in its latest edition can be found below.
