Top-ranked Universities announced in the Guardian

11th June 2013

Whether planning to become a solicitor in Portsmouth, Havant, Chichester, or further afield, prospective law students should always check out a range of institutions before making a final decision on where they plan to study and looking at a selection of league tables can offer useful information which is not always published in University prospectuses.

So, the Guardian’s top five are:

1. UCL
2. Oxford
3. London School of Economics
4. Cambridge
5. York

Interestingly, the career score – a percentage score of graduates finding graduate-level employment, or continuing with studies, within six months of graduating – was highest at Glasgow University with 91 per cent. This was closely followed by Buckingham, with 90 per cent.

UCL (University College London) moved up from fourth in the 2013 guide, to first this year, and while York scored highest for all-round satisfaction levels, the ratio of student to staff and high spend per student helped to nudge UCL into the top spot.

Data for the survey was taken from the Higher Education Statistics Agency, National Student Survey and results were calculated and ranked according to the Guardian’s formula.
