The annual league table is aimed at guiding prospective students in their higher education decision making.

It is based on criteria including entry standards, student satisfaction, research quality and graduate prospects.

Nationally the University of Oxford came out on top, the University of Cambridge in second place while the London School of Economics and Politics moved up one place from last year to rank in third.

Simon Emmett, the chief executive for the CUG, said: “The 2022 CUG league tables will serve as a valuable guide to even more actively researching students this year.

"My hope is that these rankings will help them make the right decisions as they consider their higher education options."

The annual rankings guide, which has been running for 25 years, has three main categories that it focuses on every year: the main University League table; the Arts, Music and Drama University League and a subject league table.

Of all the subject league tables, law, medicine and computer science were the most popular with students over the last year.
