Don't get me wrong, 23rd is great - but it's below several UK universities that just don't look like they should beat it. Regardless of specialisation.(Original post by Josb)
What do you mean "I don't rate it"? It's 23rd in the world in the THE, despite its lack of sciences departments.

Is UCL just massively overrated or does it deserve being 7th in the world? Watch

QS rankings seem to favour not just UCL, but several UK universities; Manchester, Bristol and Warwick all make the top 50! Not to belittle any of these universities, but these rankings seem questionable.
Regarding UCL, it is a very prestigious uni. As another poster pointed out, a better table is provided by TIMES, here UCL still make the top 15. I'm not sure why UCL receives flak from TSR users, I guess it is in part due to domestic tables and general naivety. If academic rigour and prestige are of more concern than student satisfaction, UCL undoubtedly deserves the great international rep it has.Last edited by lifestar; 31-01-2016 at 23:58.

When people on TSR rate universities they rate them as venues for undergraduate study. Then they look at tables which rank universities on a wider set of criteria and moan if they don't agree.
Asking "is UCL really better than Durham?" is asking "is UC Berkeley really better than Williams?"
