Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Paul Curran said: “This is an outstanding result and is a strong endorsement of City’s standing in the UK.”

Over the past three years we have increased the satisfaction of our students by more than any other university in the country thanks to significant effort and investment. We have doubled the proportion of our academic staff producing world-leading and internationally excellent research, modernised our campus and improved our infrastructure. I am delighted that our investments are bearing fruit and are being reflected in national rankings such as these.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Paul Curran
