New Indy University League Table

New league table from the Independent

(It appears that the authors of the Good University Guide (previously with the Times) have found a new home.)

Some quite large movers in (and out) of the top 20:

Significant risers include SOAS, up 15 places to 9th this year; Lancaster, up 9 places to 10th; Glasgow up 14 places to joint 16th; Leicester, up 8 places to 12th. Bristol drops 9 places to joint 16th; Aston drops 11 places to 23rd; Royal Holloway drops 9 places to 22nd.

Full top 20 (with last year’s rank in brackets) as follows:
1 (2) – Oxford
2 (1) – Cambridge
3= (4) – LSE

This all just seems a cut above anything offered by any UK university. Lots of others have some of these components but nothing as comprehensive as this.
