London confirmed as the Higher Education capital of the world

9 September 2016


The QS World University Rankings were released earlier this week and there was good news for the city of London, which still boasts more top 40 institutions than any other city in the world.

In the UK’s capital, University College London is seventh, Imperial College London ninth, King’s College London 21st and the London School of Economics and Political Science 37th. Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, said: “Boasting more of the globe’s top universities and welcoming the most international students, London is the higher education capital of the world and I want to make sure it stays that way.”

Every year London attracts a stream of international students who become ambassadors of the city, reinforcing the norm that London is a remarkable place to live, study, work and visit.
