Top ten rankings in The Times for Surrey’s subjects

Fourteen of the subjects taught by the University of Surrey have achieved top ten position rankings in their individual league tables in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015.

In their respective league tables, Food Science advanced one place to number two, joining Electrical & Electronic Engineering, whilst Animal Science – which includes our Veterinary Biosciences programme – rose to fourth position. Hospitality and Tourism occupied the number one position in its subject table for the third consecutive year.

Surrey Business School also received news to celebrate: Accounting and Finance (which had leapt 30 places in its subject table last year) rose a further nine places to seventh position nationally, and our Business and Management programmes performed strongly too, rising from 20th to 15th. Economics went up from tenth to eighth, and Law also climbed the subject rankings from 24th to 22nd.

Sociology was another success story, advancing seven places to fourth position in its subject table, whilst Psychology jumped eleven places to number nine.

Programmes in the Biological Sciences category also performed very well, boosting its position by six places to number seven. Civil Engineering maintained a strong position at number seven in its individual subject table, while Aeronautical & Manufacturing achieved eighth place and Chemical Engineering tenth place in their tables respectively.

Music climbed five places, from 19th to 14th position.

Overall, the University of Surrey achieved an eleventh place ranking in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015 – up from twelfth position last year.

The league table is based on performance in a number of key areas, covering student satisfaction with the quality of teaching and academic feedback, course content and facilities, graduate job prospects and the quality of research. This follows Surrey climbing to sixth position in the Guardian’s league table, published this summer.
