Cambridge retain position at top of 2020 Guardian University Rankings

13 June 2019

The University of Cambridge has maintained its position at the top of the Guardian University Guide Rankings for the ninth year in a row, narrowly edging out St Andrews who moved ahead of Oxford for the first time in seven years.

The top ten is largely the same for 2020, with Loughborough maintaining its 4th position. The University of Durham completes the top five, whilst Exeter moves into the top ten, rising four places from 14th. Other big winners include the University for the Creative Arts who debuted at 13th, Glasgow who rose ten places to 14th, and the University of Lincoln (17th) who made the top 20 for the first time in their history.

The Guardian league tables focus on the quality of teaching, student satisfaction and employability, issues that are vital to young people choosing where to study.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
