Two London universities have been named in a new top ten of the best universities in the world.

Imperial College is ranked seventh and University College London eighth in the global QS World University Rankings, 2022.

Both universities have improved on their ratings last year, when they were eighth and tenth respectively, due to their “exceptional teaching resources.”

According to global higher education analysts Quacquarelli Symonds, which compiles the league table, both universities also scored highly because of their student to teacher ratio and their “highly international status.”

Other London universities ranked in the worldwide top 50 include King’s College London at 35 and London School of Economics and Political Science at 49. The LSE scored one of the top marks in the “employer reputation” category.

Jack Moran, QS Spokesman, said: “British universities – among them London’s finest – have enjoyed some impressive gains in this year’s table, and these gains are largely driven by outstanding global recognition and research impact.

“Both are, in their own way, contingent on looking beyond Britain’s borders: research that is the result of international co-operation typically enjoys higher levels of impact, while universities that are empowered to seek talent from abroad continue to reap the benefits of doing so.”
