School of Health Sciences performs well in Complete University Guide 2017 rankings

The School of Health Sciences improve position in annual rankings


The School of Health Sciences performed excellently in the recent The Complete University Guide 2017rankings.

Overall, City was ranked 40th in the UK. The league table, published this week, also revealed that City was the best in London and in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction.

City is also the only London institution to be placed within the top 20 for student satisfaction. This significant result comes after City received its highest ever student satisfaction score in the 2015 National Student Survey.

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

"The increased ranking in The Complete University Guide 2017 of our courses in the School of Health Sciences reflects increases in the satisfaction of our students, the quality of our research and the prospects and success of our graduates.

“It is fantastic to see all the hard work and dedication from the School recognised by our ranking both nationally and within London. Staff within the School work extremely hard to provide the best possible environment for students to learn while also delivering world-leading research. These rankings are a testament to that hard work."
