University of Birmingham strengthens its top 20 league table position

Posted on Tuesday 30th April 2013

The University of Birmingham has been ranked 11th place in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2013 and 17th out of 124 UK universities in The Complete University Guide for 2014.

These latest league table results further strengthen Birmingham’s position as a top 20 university and reflect its recent performance in other highly regarded league tables, such as the Sunday Times University Guide 2013, which ranked the University in 13th place overall.

Areas particularly highlighted in the latest league tables include the excellent student experience and the quality of the courses available. In fact, of the 48 subjects on offer at Birmingham, the Complete University Guide ranked 17 in the top ten and two in first place. In addition, the University was ranked 10th place overall and first place for self-made millionaires in last week’s Wealth-X Survey, which measures the financial success of alumni.

University of Birmingham Vice-Chancellor Professor David Eastwood said: “I am delighted with our latest league table performances which reflect our ambition to become a truly exceptional university. As well as our focus on research excellence, we are committed to delivering a first-class experience for our students in every aspect of their university life; from exemplary teaching and sector-leading careers support, to outstanding facilities and a vibrant social life. Whilst we are clearly heading in the right direction, in a highly competitive market it is vital that we remain focused on our ambition and continue to build on our successes.”
