Golden Triangle (UK Universities)

Golden Triangle (UK Universities)

The "golden triangle" is an unofficial name for a set of leading universities located in the southern English cities of Oxford, Cambridge and London.

The University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge (Oxbridge) form two corners of the triangle. The third is formed by the constituent colleges of the University of London - though in recent years some commentators have only included University College London, with others also including the London School of Economics and King's College London - and Imperial College London (a former college of the University of London). The universities within the triangle attract among the highest research incomes of all British universities; in 2009–2010 Oxford, Imperial College, University College London and Cambridge had the highest, in that order.
