List of British universities

This is a list of British universities, that is, universities in the United Kingdom, which comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Brackets give the standard abbreviation for the university name, following the practice of the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Where there is possible confusion with an institution from another country, (UK) is added after the abbreviation. This can be ommitted if the context means there is no possibility for confusion. The latin abbreviations, where different from the english, are also given for the universities that still commonly use these.
