The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 will be published in full on 20th September. The league table comprises nine indicators including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entry qualifications, degree results, student to staff ratios, service & facilities spend and degree completion rates.
Professor Sir Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor of City University London commented:
"City's increased ranking in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 reflects increases in the satisfaction of our students, the quality of our research and the success of our graduates. The increase in our ranking both nationally and within London is testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff supported by our recent investment in academic staff, infrastructure and buildings. Our reputation as a leading global University is certainly growing".
The increased ranking follows the recent announcement that City will join the University of London federation in August 2016; City’s highest position in the QS World University Rankings 2015/16; and City’s highest ever score in the National Student Survey. City students are the most satisfied university students in London.
