We are pleased to announce that Southampton Education School has risen 5 places to be ranked 2nd in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2019.

The Guardian University Guide, which ranks 121 UK institutions, is entirely focused on undergraduate study and experience. Rankings are based around the familiar criteria of entry tariffs, student satisfaction, graduate prospects, student-staff ratio and university spend per student. It also provides an overall ‘value added’ score (out of 10). The guide also ranks UK universities by subject in over 50 areas.

Professor Jane Falkingham, Dean of the Faculty of Social, Human and Mathematical Sciences commented:

"I am delighted that the excellence in our teaching and student experience has been recognised with the School of Education being ranked second in the UK. This reflects the hard work and dedication of our staff and students."

Overall the University has risen 12 places to 23rd in the 2019 Guardian University Guide, which follows our recent return to the top 20 in the 2019 Complete University Guide.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Christopher Snowden commented,

“I welcome the improvement in our University’s ranking in the Guardian University Guide, following on from our six place rise in the Complete University Guide rankings, reflecting our strategic focus on quality.”
