Annually, competent in the sphere of higher education in the UK media summarize the school year, publishing independent ratings of universities. Although these results are not official, every UK University ranking compiled by the newspaper The Times, The Guardian or The Independent, is, perhaps, one of the most anticipated events, contributing to the formation of opinions and preferences of students and their parents.

Undoubtedly, the ratings assist in the selection of the University. The electronic version on the websites of the publications allow you to rank educational institutions according to the degree of significance personally for the student. For example, to build a ranking of universities in England, the most successful in your studies and have the best material-technical base. But you should not rely on them entirely, because even the most eminent universities can not be equally strong in all subject areas and aspects of our research and educational activities. Read about the rankings in this section.

British newspaper the Daily Mail, commenting on the results, which showed UK universities in world rankings 2016-2017, pay attention that the positions of most of the leading universities in the country this year declined slightly, but the number of universities represented in the top 50, top 100 and top 400 remained unchanged - and this demonstrates the great resource of the British educational system. As the reasons for the fluctuations in the ranking of British universities, the paper calls a decrease in state funding and the number of teachers from abroad.

The main competitors of British universities are universities in the US and Asia - particularly China.
