Press release -
Northumbria continues to climb up the rankings
Northumbria University is continuing to climb the national league tables, with an impressive seven place rise to rank 36th in the UK in the latest Complete University Guide.
The league table is the first of the key national university league tables to be published since Northumbria was named the UK University of the Year by Times Higher Education.
Northumbria’s rise in the Complete University Guide 2024 is down to an improved performance in a number of key metrics including entry standards, student satisfaction and graduate outcomes.
A number of Northumbria’s teaching areas rank highly in the Complete University Guide’s subject tables, ranking in the top 10 for Forensic Science, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Information Technology and Systems, Tourism and Building and in the top 20 for Education, Nursing, Food Science, Art and Design and Manufacturing and Production Engineering.
Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor Andy Long, said: “Northumbria University’s reputation has been rising rapidly in recent years and we are delighted to see yet another endorsement of our growing success in the publication of the Complete University Guide.
“In the last 12 months we have had the biggest rise in research power of any university in the UK, improved our student satisfaction scores and been named the UK university of the year. These all relate to the remarkable transformation that Northumbria has undergone over the last decade.
“We are a new model of university, rooted in and serving our community and economy, with world class teaching and cutting-edge research at our heart, and our improvement in the Complete University Guide is an achievement that we can all be proud of. It’s a great way to mark the halfway point of our time as Times Higher Education’s University of the Year.”
