The 2019 edition of the Guardian University Guide has been published today. The University is now ranked 29th in the UK (and again 4th in Scotland).
While this is a fall of five places overall, we are now ranked 3rd in the UK for quality of teaching, 5th for graduate prospects and 10th for overall student satisfaction. We have improved our ranking in six of the eight measures used in the main table last year. We did however, rank 44th for a new measure of student retention included this year for the first time, which significantly accounts for our slight overall decline in ranking despite strong progress on most other measures.
In the subject rankings Biosciences is ranked 6th in the UK. This is a fantastic achievement as we were ranked 28th in 2017 and 15th in 2018.
“Overall this is a strong set of results which point to the quality of education and training we provide, and the commitment of staff and students across the University community,” said Professor Karl Laydecker, Vice Principal (Learning and Teaching).
