Cambridge retains position at top of The Times Good University Guide 2018

25 September 2017

The University of Cambridge has retained its position at the top of the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide for a fifth consecutive year.

The University topped 30 of the 67 subject tables that feature in the 2018 Guide, as well as having the highest average completion rate for any university in the UK, with 98.9% of graduates seeing their course through to the end.

The top five remained largely the same as in 2017, with Oxford as runner up, St Andrews (third) and only Imperial College London (fourth) and Durham (fifth) swapping places. The top ten can be found below, while a full list of all 129 universities in the 2018 University Rankings will help you learn more about each institution.

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.
