What are league table rankings?

League table rankings are lists of universities ordered, or ranked, according to various criteria. These rankings are released every year and usually created by newspapers, governments or academics. Each ranking calculates their table with specific requirements, but all look at similar qualities. Student satisfaction, graduate prospects and grades are just a few of the qualities rankings look at. Some rankings only look at universities in the UK, while others evaluate universities worldwide.
League table rankings are a reliable way of comparing universities to help you identify the best options for you.
