Nottingham Trent University rises to highest ever Guardian University Guide position

7 June 2019

Nottingham Trent University has risen to 12th place in the Guardian University Guide. Once again, this demonstrates its commitment to student satisfaction and graduate employment.

The University’s highest ever ranking is a move up of four places on last year’s position and continues a trajectory that has been sustained for the last five years.

The Guardian University league table is based on ratings in areas such as student satisfaction, employment outcomes, the amount spent by universities per student and how effective teaching is.

NTU also performed well in the subject league tables, including:

  • Top 5 for accounting and finance; agriculture, forestry & food
  • Top 10 for building, town & country planning; fashion & textiles; economics; journalism, publishing and public relations; philosophy; psychology
  • Top 20 for design & crafts; biosciences; business, management & marketing; chemistry; criminology; drama & dance; engineering (civil); geography & environmental studies; modern languages and linguistics; physics; sports science

NTU was recently named University of the Year 2019 by The Guardian, based upon performance in last year’s Guardian University Guide as well as high retention of students from low-participation areas and strong attainment of BME students.

Vice-Chancellor of NTU, Professor Edward Peck, said:

“We have been working hard to improve every aspect of what we do and to see this reflected in authoritative league tables like The Guardian is testament to the outstanding quality of provision we have achieved at NTU. It continues our run of success in recent years, as we were named University of the Year 2017 at the Times Higher Education Awards and Modern University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.”
