The 2024 QS World University Rankings were published this week, with four UK universities ranking in the global top 10.
The University of Cambridge maintained its position as the second best university in the world, while the University of Oxford moved up one position to 3rd. Imperial College London placed 6th and University College London 9th.
The QS rankings are regarded as the most highly respected of the various international league tables. The methodology is based on employer and academic reputation, class sizes, research output and international staff and student numbers. For 2024, QS implemented its largest-ever methodological enhancement, introducing three new metrics: Sustainability, Employment Outcomes and International Research Network.
QS Founder and President Nunzio Quacquarelli said: “While we have always tried to remain consistent in our methodology, we must also evolve to reflect the changing missions of universities.
“We recognise that the global student community we serve understand the significance of the climate crisis and see a real responsibility among universities in supporting the sustainability agenda.”

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
