Study in the UK

In terms of numbers of international students, the UK overall lags only behind the considerably larger US – and this popularity is unsurprising given the strong global reputation enjoyed by UK universities. An impressive 71 UK universities feature in the QS World University Rankings® 2015/16, with four currently ranked among the world’s top 10.

The University of Cambridge is currently ranked joint third in the world, while the University of Oxford is sixth, followed by UCL (University College London) at seventh and Imperial College London at eighth place.

King's College London (KCL) and the University of Edinburgh are also in the global top 25, while the University of Manchester and London School Of Economics And Political Science (LSE) are within the top 40. A total of 18 UK universities appear in the top 100, and another 12 make the top 200. A shortage of exciting options will not be an issue if you’re looking to study in the UK.
