Top 10 Guardian University ranking 2020
Civil Engineering at Birmingham rises into the top ten in the 2020 Guardian University Rankings

The Guardian University Guide 2020 reveals that Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham is ranked in the top ten in the UK. 

The Guardian’s league tables rank universities according to: spend per student; the student/staff ratio; graduate career prospects; applicants' entry tariff; 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). Learn more on the Guardian website.

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.

Dr Karl Dearn , Head of Civil Engineering, said:
I am delighted with the Department of Civil Engineering's position in the Guardian University guide, providing evidence of our dedicated, hardworking and talented students and staff. It is a continuing endorsement of the quality of the teaching on our courses, of our world-class research, our international focus and the supportive learning environment that allows our students to flourish.

This high ranking in the Guardian University Guide comes after our excellent ranking in the 2018 National Student Survey. Please get in touch with our Admissions Team if you are interested in studying at Birmingham.
