(I'm posting this to all articles on UK universities as so far discussion hasn't really taken off on Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities.)
There needs to be a broader convention about which university rankings to include in articles. Currently it seems most pages are listing primarily those that show the institution at its best (or worst in a few cases). See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Universities#University ratings.

Should this information be included?
According to the Guradian University Guide 2013 does the IOE top the league table for education research, across all subjects the performance places it in the top 10 universities in the UK. Ofsted recently rated its teaching training programmes as outstanding or good with outstanding features. A 90% positive score in the national student survey 2009-10, placed it in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction" (http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2011/may/16/universityguide-institute-of-education). Annother source for student satisfaction adds that the IOE achieved a 90% positive score in the National Student Survey for 2010, placing it 9th overall in the UK for student satisfaction(http://www.london.ac.uk/2386.html).

Why doesn’t the IOE appear in most university rankings?
The IOE says the following: "The IOE is not eligible for most league tables because they are based on undergraduate programmes of study, whereas most of our programmes are postgraduate. However, we offer the UK's largest selection of programmes and courses in the field of education and are the number one university for education studies in the UK according to the latest Research Assessment Exercise" (http://www.ioe.ac.uk/about/documents/Agent_Zone/Alumni_Ambassador_toolkit_FAQ.pdf).
