Success for Leeds in key university ranking
The School is delighted with a top 10 position for social policy, according to one of the most influential league tables in the UK.
The Complete University Guide ranked social policy 8th, whilst sociology moved up the rankings to 14th. The guide, published today, also positions Leeds at 14th overall.
Professor Tom Ward, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Student Education at the University of Leeds, said: “The talent and commitment of our staff and students is the foundation of our success. As ever, I’d like to thank them for their hard work.
“Alongside the quality of our teaching and our research, Leeds excels in nurturing students through creating a supportive and friendly environment, helping them to make the most of the many opportunities on offer both within and beyond academic life.
“Leeds continues to evolve as a university of the 21st century, involving students in decisions about their experience, from curriculum design to library provision.”
The 2020 guide uses a range of criteria in the ranking, including student satisfaction, graduate prospects and completion, and investment in facilities.
Leeds moved into the top ten overall in the current Guardian University Guide, another key UK league table, and was third in the UK in the most recent Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.
Leeds was also recognised as one of the world’s most international universities earlier this year.
