The best universities in the UK are among the best in the world, according to the 2017 Lad Bible rankings, which are published each year by Lad Media.
The 2017 Lad bible is published every four years, and was compiled by Lad’s research group and compiled by a panel of academics.
The Lad bible ranks universities based on three factors: academic quality, research output and research funding.
The highest rated universities are also the most funded and have the best reputation.
These are universities that are consistently ranked as top performing universities in other countries, according the Lad bible.
The 2018 Lad bible was compiled on the basis of the same criteria, but based on a different set of criteria.
The rankings are based on five factors: research output, research funding, student enrolment and faculty.
The five criteria used by Lad are the following:Research output is measured by the number of publications, research citations and publications per academic year.
Research funding is measured on a per-student basis, with the universities receiving funding per student enrolled.
Faculty is measured as the number and types of staff per university and per academic department.
