Guardian University Guide 2019

29 May 2018 4:45PM

A number of courses at the University have been ranked in the top 30 of the Guardian University Guide 2019, with many others in the top 40.

The Guide published today (29 May 2018) features a league table of all the universities in the UK, and includes tables of each of the subject areas.

University of Suffolk’s BA (Hons) History degree was ranked 5th in the country, out of 96 institutions and the BA (Hons) Photography degree was ranked in 10th place out of 67 institutions.

Other courses featuring in the top 30 include Design, which includes Graphic Design, Graphic Design (Graphic Illustration) and Interior Architecture and Design (26th out of 75), Hospitality and Tourism (28th out of 48) and Health Profession which includes Paramedic Science, Diagnostic Radiography and Radiotherapy and Oncology which was ranked 28th out of 72.

BA (Hons) English rose 43 places in the Guide to 33 out of 105 while Criminology was ranked 31 out of 64 and Sport Sciences ranked 37 out of 76.

The Guardian University Guide differs from other leagues tables in that it is aimed specifically at students who are trying to choose a course with ranking on how much students will benefit from the teaching, whether other students liked the university and the subject, and what their chances are of getting a good job, for example.

Overall the University of Suffolk was placed 13 places higher than last year at 102nd in the table.

Professor Mohammad Dastbaz, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Suffolk said, “This is the second year that we are appearing as the University of Suffolk on various league tables, which are just one way of measuring a university’s success. We are very pleased with the progress we have made in in Arts, Design, Humanities, Health Professionals and some Social Sciences areas. Through offering an excellent student experience, innovative programmes to train the work force of the future for our region, our ambitious plan to develop our research and expand our business engagement, we are confident the University of Suffolk will be one of the key providers of excellent higher education, not only in our region, but nationally.”
