UK universities in the world top 100 rankings

Following up earlier post on the THE 2008 rankings, 17 UK universities make the top 100:

3 Cambridge
4 Oxford
6 Imperial
7 UCL
22 King’s
23 Edinburgh
29 Manchester
32 Bristol
66 LSE
69 Warwick
73 Glasgow
75 Birmingham
76 Sheffield
81= York
83= St Andrews
86 University of Nottingham
99= Southampton

Some fluctuations on 2007 but nothing too dramatic (arguably). The BBC’s reports on all this fun and entertainment is interesting for its matter of fact approach.

  1. Why there is a contradiction between the UK and the World league table published by the Times. Is int it the case that you can manipulate the league table the way you want it by choosing different criteria?
