16 September 2022
The Times and Sunday Times’ Good University Guide 2023 has announced that Falmouth University is one of the biggest movers in the national rankings, leaping forty-four places and becoming one of the top four universities in the South West.
Despite only being incorporated as a university in 2012, Falmouth this year celebrates the 120th anniversary since it began as Falmouth School of Art and in January this year, the University also welcomed a new Vice Chancellor and CEO, Professor Emma Hunt.
The HE sector has seen incredible challenges in recent years and we’re so proud of Falmouth’s entrepreneurial, inventive and agile graduates who fly the flag for creativity.
Responding to the news of Falmouth’s improvement in the guide, Professor Emma Hunt said: “It’s wonderful to witness the culmination of all the dedication of our staff at Falmouth University and the determination and passion of our student community as we celebrate 120 years of creative excellence.
"The HE sector has seen incredible challenges in recent years and we’re so proud of Falmouth’s entrepreneurial, inventive and agile graduates who fly the flag for creativity. I am personally grateful to all our staff for their hard work.”
Dr. Russell Crawford, Associate Professor of Education and Director of Learning and Teaching at Falmouth University, added: “With best practice for learning and teaching continuously evolving, we’re excited to see Falmouth rise in the rankings as we improve, refine and apply our creative contextual learning in practice.”
The new edition of The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023, a free 96-page supplement, will be published this weekend in The Sunday Times (September 18). Profiling 135 universities, it provides the definitive rankings for UK universities and the most comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain.
The academic league table is made up of nine indicators including student satisfaction with teaching quality and the wider student experience, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, and degree completion rates.
