Falling just behind Manchester, Edinburgh, London Universities and Oxbridge, but ahead of Warwick and Exeter, Bristol takes pride of place in the top ten. The scores are based on a “balanced range of 13 separate performances metrics, covering the full range of a university’s core activities: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.”
