Falmouth University has recorded one of the biggest rises in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 league table; jumping 26 places to 51 in the UK, fourth in the South West and third among modern universities (those created since 1992).
The Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide provides students and their parents with an invaluable first reference point on the path to finding a university place. The league table is drawn up from criteria including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend, and university dropout rates.
Falmouth made its debut in the main table last year, having achieved University title in December 2012.
Professor Anne Carlisle, Vice-Chancellor & Chief Executive, comments: "We believe the leaps and bounds we are making in respected league tables is testament to our investment into making courses market relevant, and that our students graduate with the skills needed to be productive straight away".
A fully searchable version of The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015, with university profiles and 66 subject tables, is published online this weekend.
