Surrey celebrates further rise in national league table

The University of Surrey has soared from twelfth to eighth place in the Complete University Guide 2016 league table, including top ten positions for twelve of its subjects.

Professor Sir Christopher Snowden, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Surrey, said: “I'm delighted to see Surrey's continued rise in national league tables, reflecting the very high standards of student experience and our success in attracting high-quality applicants, maintaining very high levels of student satisfaction and achieving an impressive employment record for our graduates.

“Twelve of our subjects feature in the top ten nationally, further testament to the world-class research and teaching on offer here at Surrey."

Subjects in the top ten include Food Science at number one, Hospitality and Tourism in second, along with Nursing, which has risen an impressive eleven places. Other success stories include Communication & Media Studies which leaped ten places to eleventh position.

This Complete University Guide success follows on from our recent award for ‘Best University for University Facilities’ at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2015.

Over the last few years the University has strengthened its league table position consistently across all all three major league tables for UK universities. We rose to sixth place in The Guardian University Guide 2015, climbed to eleventh position in The Times/The Sunday Times Good University Guide and jumped two places to ninth in The Times Higher Education Table of Tables 2015.

Data for the Complete University Guide rankings have been derived from official sources to create an independent and authoritative league table designed to match applicants’ needs.

The league table, full methodology and other information are available on the Complete University Guide website.
