The Guardian University Guide

The Guardian’s league table resource is ideal for any student looking to study in the UK, whether they be a domestic or an international student looking to join attend a British university. Each and every British institution is assessed and ranked, afforded a place on the paper’s highly prestigious evaluation. With Cambridge, Oxford and St Andrews presently sat snugly at the top spot, the Guardian supplies each course with a score, with a list of indicators including how satisfied students were with defining aspects of their education.  Criteria includes their course, training quality, feedback, student to staff ratio, spend per student, average entry tariff, value added score and job prospects after leaving university. The satisfaction of each student is then forged into an average that becomes representative of the university as a whole.
