5. Queen Mary, University of London

Queen Mary, University of London has been in the top five London universities since 2016. A merger of two historic medical schools in 1995 formed Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry; building on this legacy, the university is in the UK top ten for both Dentistry and Medicine.
