York moves up Guardian League Table

Posted on 8 September 2020

The University of York has risen four places in the 2021 Guardian University rankings.

The University moved to 16th place in the league table and saw eight subjects ranked in the top 10, including History of Art (4), Biosciences (6) Chemistry (6), Physics (9), Nursing and Midwifery (6), Film Production and Photography (5), Archaeology (9) and Psychology (9).

The Guardian guide uses a range of measures, including student satisfaction with teaching, spend per student and graduate employment to rank institutions across the country.

Dr Wayne Campbell, Academic Registrar at the University of York, said: “We are pleased to have risen four places overall in the table since last year and to have eight of our courses in the top ten. These results show how we continue to offer excellent teaching, learning and student support here at York and that student experience is at the heart of everything we do.

“These high standards are also reflected by our Gold standard in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the highest possible rating an institution can achieve.”

The success follows on from the results of the National Student Survey earlier in the year where York came top of the Russell Group for academic support and learning opportunities and second in the Russell Group for teaching.
