Medicine rises in Guardian University Guide

Medicine has risen two places to 22ndoverall, in the 2019 Guardian University Guide.

The Guardian University Guide, which was published on Tuesday 29 May 2018, ranks UK universities by subject in over 50 areas, as well as ranking institutions.

It 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 University has risen 12 places to 23rd overall and by four places in the ranking of Russell group Universities, now sitting at 14th.

Professor Iain Cameron, Dean of Medicine, said: “I welcome the improvement in the University’s ranking in the Guardian University Guide, which reflects the hard work of many people. Medicine has maintained its position in a tightly-bunched table in which the results of the National Student Survey are key. We know from feedback from our recent review by the General Medical Council that Southampton provides a friendly and effective education that prepares graduates well for practice, and we will continue to do all that we can to deliver a quality experience for our students.”
