League Table Results

University league tables provide prospective students, parents, teachers and advisors with an objective way of measuring one institution against another according to various key criteria.

There are several, most notably those produced by the Times, the Guardian and the Independent (the Independent's table is within a publication called the Complete University Guide).

League tables are constructed using different criteria, including teaching excellence, research quality, student/staff ratio and student satisfaction figures, and employ different scoring and weighting systems. This means that a university will rarely appear in the same position in two different league tables in the same year, and may be ranked much higher or lower against the criteria that matter most to you than their overall score might suggest. Another reason to use league tables carefully is that the overall ranking of the university does not always reflect the ranking of the subject you may want to study.

Our advice is to use league tables as a tool, but don't lose sight of what is most important - your own criteria. If you would like more information about studying here, visit our course pages or come to an open day.
