London is a city with a great deal going for it, as all those who have spent time there can appreciate. It’s got a thriving arts scene, world-class shopping, an incredible range of restaurants, bustling local markets and enough museums and places of interest to keep even the most avid historian happy.

London is also home to some of the world’s leading universities and the city is frequently included in the top ten or so entries when it comes to various aspects of university life. One of the latest rankings has analysed subject strength at universities around the globe and once again London has been recognised for its academic credentials – this time with two of its higher education institutions making the grade.

The comprehensive study, published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), evaluated the opinions of 76,798 academics and 44,426 employers and analyzed 28.5 million research papers for the annual ranking of universities by subject strength. The UK was home to four top entrants: the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, the Royal College of Art and the Institute of Education University College London (UCL).

Both UCL and the Royal College of Art draw students from around the world thanks to their excellent reputations. The Royal College of Art actually has another reason to celebrate at present, having been granted £54 million of funding for its new Battersea campus by UK Chancellor George Osborne during the recent budget announcement.

Student accommodation in London is highly prized, with young people from around the world seeking to attend the city’s top universities. That’s why Collegiate has provided some fabulous accommodation options within the capital including Halsmere Studios and Charles Morton Court. With a combined capacity of 240 residents, the properties offer comfortable, secure accommodation to those who like the finer things in life – from their selection of university to their choice of London student accommodation!
