When narrowing down and choosing your final options for university application (whether in the UK or elsewhere), firstly consider these lists of comparative status:
- Times Higher Education World Top 400
- QS World University Rankings
- Guardian 2013 League Table (UK only)
Notice you can change the filtering criteria on some of these. Play around. League table positions can vary radically from one subject to another, for example.
