EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in the United Kingdom ranked based on their research performance in Medicine. A graph of 146M citations received by 5.15M academic papers made by 148 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.
