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:


5. Imperial College London

Imperial College London is top of the table for Research Quality, which in this specialist institution focuses on science, engineering, medicine and business. Like Cambridge it has high Entry Standards and also has the highest Graduate Prospects of the top ten UK universities, with over 90% of students going into professional jobs or further study within six months of graduating.

Many of the university's researchers are involved in teaching, and each year an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) gives the chance for 300 students to get hands-on experience – from teaching dance routines to a humanoid robot to studying with academics based at Kew Gardens.
