25 April 2016

The Complete University Guide released their 2017 league table for UK universities this week and it is as you were at the top with The University of Cambridge ranking first for the sixth year in a row.

The top five remained the same, while Loughborough University and University College London moved into the top ten having ranked 11th and 13th respectively last year.

Other notable risers included Manchester Metropolitan, (16 places to 57th), Harper Adams University (14 places to 46th) and the University of Buckingham (14 places to 55th). The ranking is based on student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student-to-staff ratio, spending on academic services, spending on student facilities, good honours degrees achieved, graduate prospects and completion.
