John Moores somehow drops 26 places in Guardian uni rankings

What do they know?

Last year The Guardian put us ahead of the University of Liverpool in their annual rankings.

But this year they’ve dropped us to 84th place while Liverpool stayed in 59th.

Now we’re even worse than Liverpool Hope who jumped up to 79th.

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.
