The Times: 2012 University League Table

2012 University Rankings published by The Times

The new Times league table is out and there are some interesting changes. Some shuffling in the middle of the table and a couple of high climbers and a drop out.

Last year’s position in brackets:

1 Oxford (1)
2 Cambridge (2)
3 LSE  (5)
4 Imperial (3)
5 UCL (7)
6 Durham (6)
6 St Andrews (4)
8 Warwick (8)
9 Lancaster (10)
10 Exeter (12)
11 York (9)
12 Bath (13)
13 Bristol (14)
14 Sussex (21)
15 Edinburgh (11)
16 Nottingham (20)
17 Sheffield (18)
17 Leicester (15)
19 Southampton (19)
20 Loughborough (16)

Perhaps the most interesting points here:

  • Lancaster, after a meteoric rise, seems to have consolidated its position in the top 10
  • Sussex has risen 21 places in two years to enter the top 20
  • Buckingham, appearing here for the first time, sits just outside the top group at 21
  • King’s College was 12th two years ago but has now dropped to 24th
  • Nottingham continues to make steady progress (particularly pleased about that)

The full table can be found in The Times Good University Guide or you can buy the book. Both will cost you. Also on the website you can find the Subject Tables (again you will need to subscribe for access).
