3 of the world’s top 20 universities are in London

According to QS World University rankings published today, 6 of the top 20 universities in the world are in the UK, 3 of which – UCL, Imperial and King’s College – are in London. But QS also warned that unless the UK puts more funding into higher education its leading position could slip.

These rankings shows that the UK, and especially London, are still global leader in the higher education sector. It is therefore vital that the Government strikes the right balance between ensuring that we keep out bogus students and fostering the HE sector, which brings £8billion to the UK economy each year.
