Manchester ranked 33rd best uni in the world

That’s over 700 higher than Man Met

In the recently released QS Top University Rankings Manchester was ranked the 33rd, a slight decline from last year’s position of 30th.

The 2015/16 rankings also make Manchester the 7th best UK University, placing us above fellow Russell Group members LSC, Bristol and Warwick, and most importantly rank us over 700+ places above rivals Man Met.

The recognised QS rankings are a dramatic improvement compared to the dubious ratings provided by the Guardian, who placed Manchester in 29th in their UK rankings, largely based on student experience.

On a department scale, Manchester has also been ranked at a staggering 3rd in the world for Development Studies as part of the QS ratings, falling only behind Harvard and dark horses Sussex.

This will be comforting news for uni bosses who have constantly stating their desire to push Manchester in to the top 20 universities in the world before 2020.

Along with these impressive rankings, desirable graduates and the vibrant student lifestyle Manchester is really becoming a world class place to study.

The high ranking doesn’t come to a surprise to most, third year James said:”Everybody loves Manchester. It’s so good we’re managing to stamp our make among the world’s elite. It won’t be long before we reach that top 20 mark!”
