In the Complete University Guide (CUG) which was published today our University has been recognised as the most improved in Scotland and the eighth most improved university in the UK.
Our rise in the CUG was due to a number of factors including increased scores in student satisfaction, graduate prospects, academic facilities spend and good honours – the percentage of graduates achieving a first class or 2:1 degree.
This league table also saw us being ranked fourth in the UK Education subject table. Our scores improved or stayed the same in 17 of the 25 subject tables in which we featured.
This success builds on our recent achievements such as being ranked in the world’s top 200 universities under 50 years of age in the Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings 2017. This followed being officially recognised last year in the top 5% of universities worldwide, featuring for the first time in the World University Rankings.
Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, said:
“This is tremendous news and shows just how hard you are all working and how far we have come, that we really are achieving our ambitions.At UWS we place huge importance on delivering an outstanding student experience and I am delighted that your hard work and commitment is being recognised by successes such as this.”
