When it comes to UK university rankings, StudentCrowd’s Best Universities 2021 league table is one of the most sought-after league tables around. That's because our university awards are the only university league table to be based 100% on student opinion gathered through our student reviews.
In 2020, UCAS discovered that “online reviews by students” was the 2nd most important resource for applicants choosing a university. So we think the timing is pretty perfect!
How are the winners selected?
Given the impact of COVID-19 on the university experience in 2020/2021, we have expanded our normal timeframe for awards. Winners have been selected based on their average review score over the 24-month period from July 2019 to July 2021. The average review scores are across our university, course and accommodation review categories.
Please note, these rankings are a snapshot from 2019-21 reviews (the live university league table is updated daily with the latest review scores).
