University of Leeds ranked 15th in Sunday Times Good University Guide

The national league table was released last week

The Sunday Times Good University Guide has ranked the University of Leeds at number 15 on its national league table for 2021, maintaining its 2020 position.

The table bases itself off of several factors, including teaching quality, student satisfaction, graduate prospects and completion rate.  Including 135 universities, St Andrews has been placed at number one, closely followed by Oxford and Cambridge.

At number 15, Leeds stands as the highest ranking university in Yorkshire.

The university has been praised for its handling of the pandemic, with its success in switching to remote learning having had a positive impact on student satisfaction, which stands at 69.6 per cent. Several other universities have meanwhile seen a steep decline in this area.

Last year, the uni also climbed two places in the QS World University Rankings. Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Hai-Sui Yu responded to the rankings, stating that, even in the face of the pandemic, “we stand with our colleagues across the world in working hard to secure the best possible higher education experience for current and prospective students.”
