UK University League Table & Rankings 2022

Need to see a list of the best UK universities as chosen by students themselves? Take a look at the top 100 university rankings in the UK below.

Unlike some other university rankings, our UK university league table is voted for by students who have actually studied, or are still studying, at each university. Your university email address is required to create an account and verify that you are a student so that we can publish your review on our league table.

Add your very own review to the 25,000+ student reviews we’ve already gathered so far to let others know how your experience has been and to help inform them when making their own decision. Our university rankings also help universities themselves to improve their offering in each of the different areas that you can review.

Review your university’s campus, facilities, clubs, societies, students union, careers service, internet & wifi as well as adding any further comments to help us ensure our university league table is as reflective of the student experience and as up to date as possible.
