How it Works

League table methodology, key and notes

The first university league tables were published nearly 20 years ago and have continued to be the subject of vigorous debate among academics ever since. We remain convinced that comparisons are valid and helpful to students and their mentors when it comes to choosing a university. The raw data for the League Tables come from sources in the public domain and our methodology is arguably the most independent and robust in use today.
