The University of Bath has been ranked ninth out of 117 universities and colleges in the UK in The Guardian University Guide 2010.
The ninth place ranking means that once again Bath is top of the regional ranking for the South-West.
The Guardian’s table, published in today’s newspaper, focuses on how well a university educates its students rather than the research it conducts.
Its criteria for judging a university include:
- the performance of its staff;
- the amount spent per student;
- the student/staff ratio;
- the students’ job prospects;
- students’ degree performance;
- their A level entry grades;
- and their feedback on the University’s performance.
Professor Glynis Breakwell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bath, said: “This is excellent news for the University and follows on from our recent ninth place position in the Complete University Guide 2009 published in The Independent newspaper.
“Colleagues across the University can feel rightly proud of our top ten position in this table. It clearly reflects the commitment of everyone at the University to provide a high quality education for our students.”
