Overview

What are the most popular public universities in the UK? uniRank seeks to answer this question by publishing a complete list of UK public universities ranked by uniRank universities in 2022 and meeting uniRank selection criteria:

  • Statutory, licensed, or accredited by a relevant higher education institution in the United Kingdom
  • Submission of at least four years of bachelor's degree (bachelor's degree) or postgraduate degree (master's or doctoral degree)
  • Conducting courses mainly in the traditional form, face-to-face, distance learning

Our goal is to present the Non-Academic League Table of Public Universities of the United Kingdom based on reliable, unbiased, and ineffective web measurements, not the data provided by the universities themselves.

What are Public Universities?

There are two types of universities in the UK - public and private. While private universities are funded and regulated by private organizations, public universities in the UK are funded by the British government. Public universities in the UK are funded by the government’s direct funding council but act as independent bodies.

They are regulated, reviewed, and classified by the Office of Students in England. The Office of Students has developed an excellent educational framework, criteria on the basis of which they evaluate public universities based on the knowledge and experience of their teachers.
