THES top 200 World University Rankings 2007 and Guardian UK top 100 Universities

Two new University rankings have been released this week.

The Guardian and Times Higher Educational Supplement.

When students are looking for a University to study at it is vitally important that league tables are consulted. The reputation of the institution that you undertake your postgraduate study can have a significant impact on your future career prospects.

For Economics and Business this is especially true.

The first ranking is from the Guardian and they rank all UK Universities.

I list here only the top 20 UK Universities. If possible aim to go to one of the top ten. Given the expense of living in London, a non-London university will restrict you to a smaller sample of Universities. In the sidebar we include those Universities that have Economics related MSc programmes. A quick cross-reference will give you a good idea of where to apply.

Oxford
Cambridge
Imperial College London
Coll London
Edinburgh
King's College London
Birmingham
Manchester
Glasgow
Bristol
Southampton
Sheffield
Leeds
Cardiff
Nottingham
Newcastle University
Liverpool
Durham
Queen Mary, London
Leicester

The second ranking is from THES. This is a ranking of the top 200 Universities across the world.

The UK has 20 Universities in the top 100 with 16/20 moving UP, 2 staying the same (Oxford and Cambridge at 3 and 2 respectively) and 2 falling (LSE and Glasgow).

The shock is the LSE dropping to 59 from 17. Something has gone wrong here I suspect.

The other UK universities in order of the ranking are:

Cambridge 2
Oxford 3
Imperial College London 5
UCL 9
Edinburgh 23
Kings College London 24
Manchester 30
Bristol 37
Warwick 57
LSE 59
Birmingham 65
Sheffield 68
Nottingham 70
York 74
St Andrews 75
Leeds 80
Southampton 81
Glasgow 83
Cardiff 99
Liverpool 100

It is interesting to compare the two rankings. Many Universities appear in both lists but by no means all. Again, selecting a University that appears in both is likely to be wise move.

Given the costs on an MSc in Economics are fairly similar across Universities especially for economics there is no excuse for attempting, at least at first, to get into one of the top UK Universities.
