Top 6 UK Universities

The selection of the top 6 UK Universities was made by selecting the Universities that ranked in the top 10 list of all three of the most prestigious UK Graduate Universities for 2022. These were the “Complete University Guide”, the “Guardian”, and the “QS Top Universities”. These 6 Universities were:

  1. University of Oxford
  2. University of Cambridge
  3. Imperial College London
  4. University College London
  5. London School of Economics
  6. University of Warwick

Top 2 London Universities

Given that the Foundation is based in London, we supplemented this list with the top two London based Universities from our trusted rankings lists, not included our already selected Universities. These Universities were:

  1. King’s College London
  2. Queen Mary, University of London

Business Schools

Lastly, we wanted to ensure that we did not miss out on students interested in attending the top UK Business Schools. We used the most prestigious Business School Ranking list in the World, the Financial Times rankings and selected all UK Business Schools which were part of the top 25 European Universities list of 2022. In addition to the Universities that were already included, we added two more UK Universities that were included in that list. Those were:

  1. London Business School
  2. Bayes Business School

While the Universities can frequently change positions on the rankings lists, to ensure continuity and the ability to build long term relationships with these Universities, the trustees have decided to adopt these Universities as the preferred Universities for the Foundation for the foreseeable future. As a result the Foundation does not intend to review or change this list for the foreseeable future.
