Being a student in London is pretty cool. You’ve got access to some beautiful, world-class libraries, some of the UK’s best culture at your fingertips for all that learnin’, and most important of all: banging nightlife. What’s more, is that some of London’s universities are officially some of the best in the world. Two London unis have been ranked among the world’s top 10 institutions by the QS World University Rankings.
Imperial College London was ranked sixth in the world by the trusted league table, while UCL came in ninth place. King’s College London and The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) were also placed among the world’s top 50, coming in 40th and 45th respectively.
The ranking body, which has been going for 20 years, analyses the academic reputation, employability, international research and sustainability of each university. The league table features 1,500 unis from around the world, with 90 of them being from the UK, making it the second most represented country behind the USA. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was crowned as the world’s best university, followed by Cambridge and Oxford in second and third place.
Professor Hugh Brady, President of Imperial College London said: ‘This result confirms that Imperial is one of the best universities in the world, and is a testament to our brilliant, diverse community, our global outlook, and the spirit of innovation that runs through everything we do.’
Turns out Londoners are quite clever, actually.

If you haven’t been to Gura Gura in Covent Garden yet, you’re missing great pan-Asian food! We tried quite a few dishes on the sharing plates menu, along with cocktails and are looking forward to returning.
Any rich revellers looking for the ultimate party pad? We’ve found just the place, and it’s right in the heart of Covent Garden, in Neal’s Yard’s iconic colour-splashed courtyard.
Yours for £3,500,000, the luxury loft-style penthouse is described as ‘discreet’, ‘self-indulgent’ and ‘ultra central’. According to Nest Seekers, who are listing the property, natural light pours through huge skylights, creating a bright and welcoming open-plan space. And just to be on the safe side, it has not one, but two, private terraces – one of which backs onto the blue-plaqued former stomping ground of comedy troupe Monty Python.
The estate agents also note the pad has played host to the ‘London party set who have been royally entertained here by the current owner over the last twenty years.’ John Cleese, if you mattress surfed down these particular set of stairs, our DMs are open.
If all that excitement wasn’t enough, there’s even a sauna in-situ – the perfect spot to sweat out your latest hangover, or unwind after a day of stocks, shares, crypto or whatever the 1% get up to between the hours of 9-5.
Have a snoop around yourself.
