School of Health Sciences performs well in Good University Guide 2016 rankings

Courses from the School of Health Sciences do well in annual rankings

by George Wigmore (Senior Communications Officer)

Courses from the School of Health Sciences at City University London performed well in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 rankings for Universities in the UK.

All of our courses have performed well with two subject areas receiving the top two rankings in the University. Radiography was ranked 10th out of 23 Higher Education Institutions. While ‘Other Subjects Allied to Medicine’ which includes programmes from our Optometry and Visual Sciences, Language and Communication Science and Health Services Research and Management Divisions was ranked 11th out of 79.

Overall the University increased its position achieving 41st place, an increase of five places over last year. City also increased its position to 7th in London, behind Imperial College London and five University of London colleges.

The league table is comprised of nine indicators including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entry qualifications, degree results, student to staff ratios, service and facilities spend and degree completion rates.

City’s employability record was highlighted with the University securing 26th place nationally for the percentage of students going into professional jobs or further study after they graduate. Again the School did exceptionally well in this area with Nursing, Radiography and ‘Other Subjects Allied to Medicine’ scoring over 90%. Nursing receiving the highest score of 96.9% for graduate prospects.

Professor Stanton Newman, Dean of the School of Health Sciences, commented:

"The increased ranking in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 of our courses in the School of Health Sciences reflects the performance in areas of student satisfaction, quality of our research and the success of our graduates.

“It is great to see the work of the School recognised by our ranking both nationally and within London. The School is committed to providing the best possible environment for students to learn in whilst also delivering world-leading research. These rankings are a testament to the staff’s hard work and dedication to achieving these goals. With our soon-to-open new clinics we will continue to maintain these excellent results by providing first-class facilities for education and practice."

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.
