Top Universities in Wales


Which universities in Wales are the most popular? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this query by releasing the 2021 Wales University Ranking, which includes ten accredited higher-education institutions in Wales that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

  • being chartered, authorised, or certified by the relevant UK higher education-related body, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

Our goal is to create a non-academic League Table of the best universities in Wales focused on valid, impartial, and non-influenceable site metrics generated by objective web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the universities.
