Middlesex University has moved up five places to 73rd in TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk’s annual ranking of UK universities, which was published on Wednesday 26 April.
Middlesex is ranked as the second highest modern university in London for the second year in a row after enjoying an 11 place climb in last year’s league table. This consistent rise has been aided by a further improvement in employability statistics for the University’s recent graduates.
“We’re very pleased to note our continued rise in the university rankings tables and particularly happy that an important factor in this progress is the employability of our fantastic graduates,” says Professor Tim Blackman, Middlesex University’s Vice-Chancellor.
“Many of the students here are the first in their families to go to university and embark on professional careers. Despite the obstacles many of them face, the vast majority succeed and find meaningful employment.
“Our aim is for Middlesex graduates to become agents of change, adding tremendous value to the companies where they work, pioneering innovation in the public services and creating the businesses of the future.”
The ranking criteria
The league table is based on ten measures: Student Satisfaction, Research Quality, Research Intensity, Entry Standards, Student: Staff Ratio; Spending on Academic Services; Spending on Student Facilities; Good Honours Degrees; Graduate Prospects and Completion. It includes 129 institutions.
“As a diverse and vibrant modern university we welcome students from all backgrounds and provide them with the knowledge and skills to take forward into the workplace," Professor Tim Blackman, Middlesex University’s Vice-Chancellor
“It is ten years since TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk launched its online university league tables, and they have proved their accuracy, independence and robustness over the decade,” says Dr Bernard Kingston, Chairman of TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk
“This year there is a considerable degree of stability at the upper end of the league table, as in the past. This stability, while it may not attract the headlines, demonstrates that the rankings fulfill our principal objective – to provide credible and freely accessible information for individuals seeking a university place.”
