Southampton ranked in Top 20 by Complete University Guide

The University of Southampton is once again one of the best universities in the country

The Complete University Guide placed University of Southampton 17th in its national rankings of universities for 2017.

Southampton has been in the Top 20 since the Guide began publishing the list online in 2007.

Similar universities such as Bristol, who placed in 24th, falling 9 places, KCL, who came in 21st, found themselves further down on the list. Manchester, Nottingham and Cardiff also finished outside of the Top 20.
