Bath has beaten Exeter, King’s and Leeds in the 2016 uni rankings

We’re in the top 15 universities in the country

Bath have been crowned the 12th best university in the UK.

The rankings, from the Complete University Guide, saw us beat the likes of Exeter, York, Leeds and King’s College London.

Cambridge took the top spot, with Oxford, LSE, Imperial and St Andrews rounding out the top five.

Bath Spa came in at joint 76th, along with the prestigious Arts University Bournemouth.

Despite Bath’s high ranking, the position is still a one place drop from last year.

The annual rankings are based on a criteria including student satisfaction, entry standards, research quality and intensity and the student: staff ratio.

Other factors are the universities spending on academic services and student facilities, good honour degrees achieved and graduate prospects and completion.
