8 Sep 2020 3:45PM

History at the University of Suffolk has once again appeared at the top of the Guardian University Guide 2021. The popular subject has been ranked third in the country sitting alongside Oxford, St Andrews and Cambridge.

Overall the University has climbed 22 places in the table.

English and Creative Writing moved up 47 places in the last year to be ranked 13th in the country, the Graphic Design degrees have been ranked 16th moving up 25 places, Sport Science has been ranked 20th in the country, while Sociology has seen the greatest improvement moving up 62 places since last year to be ranked 26th in the country.

Professor Mohammad Dastbaz, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said “We have seen an overall improvement of nearly 20%. We are delighted with our overall performance and that of many of our courses as we approach the start of the new academic year.”

The Guardian University Guide is the first league table to use new data which gauges graduate jobs 15 months after graduation rather than after six months, and is thought to more accurately capture graduate employability. It also ranks institutions based on teaching and the students’ experience of the University overall and their individual degree subject.
