University of Greenwich climbs 10 places in the Guardian University League Tables


The university has climbed from 100th to 90th place in the League Tables, which rank UK institutions on a variety of factors.

As well as gaining ground in the overall rankings, the university has also been ranked 10th place for engineering, and in the top 20 for Civil Engineering, Politics, Forensic Science and Archaeology, Hospitality, Event Management and Tourism, and Mathematics.

Professor David Maguire, Vice-Chancellor of the university, said of the news: "This is a great achievement for the whole university. It's hugely rewarding to see Greenwich continue to move up this table and particularly welcome to see such as wide range of our courses also rank in the top twenty by subject. Our focus continues to be on providing the best possible university experience for all of our students."

The university was rated highly on student satisfaction with their course, scoring 80 / 100. Satisfaction with the standard of teaching was also high, scoring 81 /100. Both of these scores are based on the National Student Survey (NSS), which is completed each year by final year students at the university.

The Guardian league table is specifically aimed at students who are trying to choose a course, meaning it ranks universities on factors that important to young people. These factors include how much students will benefit from the teaching, whether current students like the university and the subject, and what their chances are of getting a good job.

Today's announcement follows the results of the Complete University Guide, which recognised Greenwich as a notable climber, moving up 13 places to 83rd overall.
