University of Surrey’s impressive rise in the Guardian league table
Monday 21 May 2012
The University of Surrey is delighted to have risen to 12th place in the Guardian newspaper’s new University league table.
Professor Sir Christopher Snowden, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, commented: "On behalf of all colleagues at the University, I am delighted with our continued progress and recognition in the Guardian League Table. Surrey continues to demonstrate its qualities as a leading university."
This year 14 out of 22 subjects are in the top 20 with strong improvements from Biosciences, Chemistry, Economics and in particular Politics who have climbed 29 places. Tourism, Civil Engineering and Sociology have all maintained their strong positions as top 5 in their fields. Last year the Guardian’s Guide placed Surrey at 19th position in the table.
The table is part of the Guardian Good University Guide, which is published annually as a guide to all UK universities ranked according to teaching excellence. The Guide is used by prospective undergraduate students and their parents to make informed decisions about which University to choose.
The success comes after recent other rises in the league tables. Over the last few years the University has dramatically strengthened its league table position consistently across all the main university league tables, including the Guardian, The Times, and the Sunday Times.
