UCL Geography in top two for UK geographical research

Sustained position in international rankings

UCL Geography in top two for UK geographical research

The 2021 international Shanghai Ranking of university research excellence has again confirmed the top position of UCL Geography for national and global geographical research.

The latest tables show that UCL Geography continues to be ranked as 2nd in UK and 4th in global geographical research.

While such metrical approaches to research quality may be treated cautiously, the consistency of UCL Geography’s position, rising steadily during the past decade, reflects its continuing success at the highest level of international research.

ShanghaiRanking has published Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) since 2009, and an Academic Excellence Survey (AES) since 2017 based on the opinions of more than 1000 professors from top world universities.

For 2021, more than 1,800 universities were ranked on the numbers of research papers published in Nature and Science, their citation by other authors, international collaboration and measures of research quality.
