Southampton continues its rise in UK league tables

14th June, 2018

KUALA LUMPUR” The University of Southampton has notched up 12 places to 23rd overall in the 2019 Guardian University Guide.

Additionally, Southampton is ranked in the top 10 by The Guardian across 10 subject areas including Education which ranks second in the UK.

The University is also ranked second in the country for Electronic & Electrical Engineering – continuing a run of nine consecutive years in the UK top two as ranked by The Guardian – joined by Civil Engineering (4th) and Mechanical Engineering (6th) to complete a hat-trick of top 10 ratings for Southampton’s undergraduate engineering programmes.

These latest results follow Southampton’s recent return to the top 20 in the 2019 Complete University Guide where Southampton recently climbed 6 places to 20th overall.

President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Christopher Snowden, commented, “I welcome the improvement in our University’s ranking in the Guardian University Guide, following on from our 6 place rise in the Complete University Guide rankings, reflecting our strategic focus on quality.”

Southampton is also ranked in the top 10 by The Guardian for Media & Film Studies (5th), Philosophy (6th), Physics (6th), Art (7th – through the Winchester School of Art), Computer Science & Information Systems (8th) and Earth & Marine Sciences (10th). Overall, 80% of Southampton’s subject rankings are in the top 40.

“These results reinforce the outstanding education experience and training of the highest quality to our students provided by the University and Electronics and Computing Science on such a consistent basis,” said Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi, Dean of Physical Sciences and Engineering.

“Our Electronic & Electrical Engineering programme is clearly among the best in the UK but I am also delighted to note that Computer Sciences and Physics, incorporating Astronomy, are among the 10 in their disciplines which is a fantastic achievement. Such consistent performances are testament to the expertise and commitment of our staff as well as leadership at Department and Faculty level.”

Professor Jane Falkingham, Dean of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences added: “I am delighted that the excellence in our teaching and student experience has been recognised with the School of Education being ranked second in the UK. This reflects the hard work and dedication of our staff and students.”

The Guardian University Guide, which ranks 121 UK institutions, is entirely focused on undergraduate study and experience. Rankings are based around the familiar criteria of entry tariffs, student satisfaction, graduate prospects, student-staff ratio and university spend per student. It also provides an overall ‘value added’ score (out of 10).
