Giving students a competitive edge for their future. That's what we do, and it's what we have been doing since our first students passed through our doors in 1894. The beautiful, landscaped grounds of the University campus are an ideal place to study, relax and socialise in. Safe and secure, the campus has a friendly, close-knit and cosmopolitan community.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
