Among the 2013 organisations ranked, six other universities were within the first 100: University of Bath (rank 30), University of Essex (34), Open University (48), University of Central Lancashire (54), Manchester Metropolitan University (59) and University of Birmingham (73). Twenty-three universities, along with 779 other organisations, ranked joint last.
