Physics climbs to 2nd place for career prospects in 2019 Guardian league table

Posted on 29 May 2018

The Department has moved up to 2nd for 'Career after six months' in 2019 Guardian University Guide.

The Department of Physics is ranked 2nd in 'Career after six months' in the UK in the Guardian University guide 2019. This week the department confirmed its place among the UK’s most highly regarded departments for percentage of graduates who find graduate-level jobs, or are in further study at professional or HE level, within six months of graduation. The significant rise from last year is thanks to the excellent work of the White Rose Industrial Physics Academy (WRIPA) and the Careers Liaison Officer.

Published annually, the Guardian’s University Guide ranks 121 UK universities by undergraduate degree subjects according to satisfaction with course, teaching and feedback; student to staff ratio spend per student; entry tariff; career after six months of leaving the course; degree results compared to entry qualifications; and continuation of first year students.

The rankings are based on official data collected by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the National Student Survey, published by HEFCE.
