QS World University Rankings 2010: UK results

QS World University Rankings 2010: UK results – good, bad or indifferent?

Following up the earlier post on the QS world top 20 it is interesting to note that, depending on your perspective, a goodly/pitiful number of UK universities appear in the QS top 100 as follows (last year in brackets):

1 Cambridge (2)
4 UCL (4)
6 Oxford (5=)
7 Imperial (5=)
21 King’s (23)
22 Edinburgh (20=)
27 Bristol (34)
30 Manchester (26)
53 Warwick (58)
59 Birmingham (66)
69 Sheffield (82)
73 Nottingham (91)
77 Glasgow (79)
80 LSE (67=)
81 Southampton (95=)
85 Leeds (99)
88 York (70=)
92 Durham (103=)
95 St Andrews (87=)

19 UK institutions in the top 100 is not bad, and, whilst the big story for QS remains Cambridge ousting Harvard in the top slot, there isn’t a huge amount of change here although the University of Nottingham and the University of Sheffield are relatively big climbers here.
