The table also reflects the findings of the 2021 National Student Survey (NSS), in which Warwick ranked 13th in the UK for overall student satisfaction.

The Guardian also ranked individual subjects, naming Film and Television Studies at Warwick the best in the country. Professor Rachel Moseley, Head of the Department, commented:

“We are really delighted to be ranked first in the UK for Film and Television Studies, with a score of 100 per cent, after the toughest of years in 2020-2021. This says everything about the commitment and hard work of our academic and professional support colleagues, and about the passion and outstanding achievements of our students. Well done and an enormous thank you to everyone.”

Other highlights include ranking 2nd for Business, Management and Marketing, and 3rd for History of Art.

The Vice-Chancellor Stuart Croft said:

“The last eighteen months have been a time like no other in our University’s history, but as each new challenge arose the Warwick community came together and worked tirelessly to ensure that we continued to deliver what we are globally recognised as being; a home of research and teaching excellence.

“This has been a real team effort and the Guardian’s recognition of what has been achieved by our students, academic staff, and administrative and estates teams throughout our community, is something of which we can all be proud – and I am absolutely delighted to once more offer my thanks and congratulations to all you.”
