For the second consecutive year, UAL is ranked second for Art and Design in the QS University World Rankings by Subject 2020.

London was confirmed as the continuing centre of creative education with the top spot taken by the Royal College of Art, an institution dedicated to postgraduate studies.

"Retaining our number two ranking for Art and Design is testament to the amazing work of our students, staff and graduates. Our position as the global leader for undergraduate arts education underpins UK creative education as the best in the world. This result builds on the recent evidence which shows UAL graduates not only receive a world class education, but that a higher percentage of them go on to become business leaders than from any other UK university. This reiterates how vital creative education is to both our industry and economy."
Nigel Carrington, UAL Vice-Chancellor
