2013 UK University Table Puts Cambridge on Top

The latest UK university rankings were revealed this week, placing Cambridge in top spot for the second year running. Arch rival Oxford was placed second in the Guardian University Guide 2013 league table, whilst St Andrews in Scotland took third place.

The annual rankings are based on the quality of universities in a variety of different categories for full-time undergraduate students. The categories include:

  • How much they spend per student
  • Student to staff ratio
  • Career prospects of graduates
  • The ‘value-added' score between first and final year students
  • Final year student satisfaction (based on results from the National Student Survey)
