The above mentioned tables portray the top 5 colleges or universities for studying Art & Design in UK according to the two most influential editorials i.e. Times and The Guardian. Both have enlisted different colleges based on various aspects like teaching, spend per student, research, career prospects and entry.

One can clearly see that Oxford features within the top 2 spots on both the lists. However, only TimesOnline provide the exact career prospects after doing your Art & Design courses from Oxford University [54%]. This is a clear indication of the fact that one shouldn’t always go by ranking alone while choosing a college for further studies. There are certainly many other factors like course curriculum, infrastructure, location and job prospects nearby to colleges, number of international students, academic and social environment etc.

Rankings are very important while selecting a college but they are not the only basis of judging or narrowing down a prospective college or university for your future career.
