Top Ten UK Universities 2020

The Complete University Guide's 2020 League Tables are the most comprehensive, independent rankings of the UK’s universities. The main League Table measures universities by ten key indicators, including Student Satisfaction, Graduate Prospects and Student-Staff ratios.

Here's a countdown of the Top Ten universities of 2020:

"Houghton Street, LSE"

4. London School of Economics and Political Science

In the top five since 2008, LSE drops to fourth place in the 2020 University League Table. Known for its expertise in the social sciences, it tops the table for Social Policy – and nine other subjects also get a top ten ranking.

In April 2018, LSE's Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) achieved recognition as a global centre of excellence, becoming one of only two ESRC Institutes in the UK. Institute status recognises the CEP's long-term impact on policy, as well as excellence in training researchers and building expertise in economics.
