BRUNEL University is celebrating after jumping more than 35 positions in a national league table,
In The Guardian University Guide League Table, published last week, the university went from 82nd to 44th place in the overall ranking and took the top spot for its social work.
The Guardian’s league table is based on measures such as how highly final-year students have rated their university experience, a value-added score, universities’ spending per student, staffing ratios, and graduate career prospects.
Brunel University vice-chancellor Professor Chris Jenks said: “I am delighted that Brunel University has gone up by a record 38 positions in The Guardian University Guide League Table, moving us back into the Top 50 universities and scoring our highest position since 2006.
“We have improved our performance in relation to the three measures of student satisfaction, spend per student, student/staff ratio, and career prospects.
“Nineteen of our 22 subjects ranked last year have moved up in ranking.
“I would like to offer my particular congratulations to Professor Susan Buckingham and her colleagues in the division of social work for their individual outstanding result, and to Design, for again confirming that this course is one of the best of its kind in the country.”
