79 Best universities for Fashion Design in the United Kingdom

Below is the list of best universities in the United Kingdom ranked based on their research performance in Fashion Design. A graph of 61.8K citations received by 8.31K academic papers made by 79 universities in the United Kingdom was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science profiles.
