It’s official: Edinburgh Uni makes the UK top 20

We moved up one whole place

According to the 2017 Complete University Guide, the University of Edinburgh is ranked 19th in the UK.

Since last year we’ve managed to move up from 20th to 19th, but remain behind some rogue contenders such as Surrey, Loughborough and East Anglia.

Number one for good looks though x

The guide, released today, calculates the ranking based on student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student: staff ratio, spending on academic services, spending on student facilities, good honours degrees achieved, and graduate prospects.

Obviously, Oxbridge and LSE kept their hold over the top three, and although rivals St. Andrews made fifth place, we left Glasgow in the dust at 29th.

As usual we raced away from Edinburgh Napier who came 92nd, while Heriot-Watt managed to make 34th place.
