Guardian university rankings

The Guardian’s league tables rank universities according to: spending per student; the student/staff ratio; graduate career prospects; what grades applicants need to get a place; a value-added score that compares students’ entry qualifications with their final degree results; and how satisfied final-year students are with their courses, based on results from the annual National Student Survey (NSS). 

The tables are compiled under guidance by an expert review group of professionals from UK universities. The group meets regularly to monitor changes in subject areas and the way data is collected to ensure the Guardian University Guide is as relevant to students as possible.
