University "very pleased" to be ranked ninth in UK

The University of Bath was “very pleased” to be ranked ninth among UK universities in the Daily Telegraph’s league table today.

The University’s Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology was ranked first in the country, and its Department of Mechanical Engineering was ranked second. Its Department of Chemistry came equal sixth.

The league table, published online, looks at: student satisfaction; research strength; student entry grades; student-staff ratios; spending on academic services such as staff, books, journals and computers; spending on facilities; the proportion of first class and upper seconds awarded to graduating students; the proportion of students leaving for graduate jobs or further study; and drop-out rates.

The University was ranked equal ninth by The Guardian in May, and ninth by The Times last year.

A University of Bath spokesperson said: “We’re very pleased to be ranked ninth in the UK by the Daily Telegraph, ahead of larger and older universities. We feel this is a recognition of the high quality of teaching and facilities we offer here, which is reflected in the academic achievements of our students and their success at getting jobs.”

The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for quality research and teaching. View a full list of the University's press releases:
