Today’s Guardian league table has seen a five place drop for the University. League tables vary, in the statistics and figures that they use, which goes someway to explaining why there is often such a change in the University’s position throughout an academic year.
Nevertheless, I am disappointed with these latest results and we are already working to address the issues the figures highlight. Looking forward, we continue to place great importance on attracting a high calibre of students and leading academics; improving the student experience; improving our estate; and also achieving the best results in our research and knowledge transfer activity.
I’d like to thank all members of staff for their contributions to these aims and their commitment to the University and our students.
