The list, which was published by Times Higher Education (THE), ranked the top global universities for providing digital education and encouraging tech skills.

The rankings were compiled by French consultancy, Emerging, and used surveys from 3,400 participants including corporate executives, start up executives and digital professionals, to explore which universities had a good reputation for providing a digital education.

The rankings come as technology and computer science are some of the fastest growing industries in the world, and new roles and jobs are being created every month.

In the UK, City was only bested by University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, London School of Economics and Political Science and Imperial College London.

In a separate ranking, London was listed as the fourth best city for digital education and careers.

Technology is one of the fastest growing industries the world, so teaching digital skills to students has become more important than ever.

City has been at the leading edge of computer science in the UK for six decades, so it is a great achievement to be recognised in this report. Higher education institutions must continue to provide their students with the necessary tech skills to help them succeed in work after they graduate.
