As we always advise our students, the choice of the university should be based on the rankings of the university in a specific subject rather than on the overall ranking.
The difference between the overall rankings of a university and the rankings of some of its subjects can be striking. For example, the University of Westminster occupies the 100th place in the overall ranking. However, in Media and Communications, and Fashion studies it’s one of the best universities in the UK.
