The 2021 QS World University Rankings were published today, with the University of Oxford leading the 90 UK universities who feature in the top 1000.

Oxford narrowly saw off domestic competition from Oxbridge rival the University of Cambridge (7th), Imperial College London (8th), University College London (10th) and the University of Edinburgh (20th).

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
