Times best uni for every subject 2024

These are the best unis for every single subject, according to The Times Good Uni Guide

It’s a great day to be studying land and property management at Cambridge


Just as Freshers’ Week is kicking off for another year, another round of uni rankings has come in making you question every single decision you’ve made.

The Times Good University Guide 2024 was released at the weekend and from it, we know the best universities in the country, the poshest unis and the whitest unis. But what about which uni is the best for your niche subject? I don’t know about you, but I’ve been desperate to know the top uni for town and country planning.

Some people say you should pick your university first and then your subject but for people who are dead set on studying a particular subject, it’s good to know which universities are the very best in that subject.

Cambridge, which came third in the overall uni rankings, has the most number one subjects with 18.
