Hull somehow drops 17 places in Guardian Uni Rankings

What do they know?

Hull have been slammed in the latest uni rankings. We’ve been put in 71st place.

In The Guardian’s University League Tables for 2017, Hull dropped 17 spots.

While we still beat Plymouth, UCLan and Huddersfield, we’re not quite sure how this happened.

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.

They also factor in 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). Specialist tables also rank universities by subject area.
