Guardian University Guide: top ten for Leeds

We’ve moved into the Guardian University Guide top ten for the first time, jumping four places and rising for the fourth consecutive year.

We also recently improved our position in the latest Complete University Guide, and achieved a top three position in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, the highest-ranked among the Russell Group of research-intensive universities.

The Guardian Guide uses a wide range of measures to assess universities, including student satisfaction with teaching, spend per student, and a graduate employment measure.  

Professor Tom Ward, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor: Student Education said: "I want to thank our students and staff for making Leeds a top ten university.  

"This position is a fantastic tribute to them and highlights the excellence across the board that is on offer at Leeds; in the quality of our teaching, our research, our international focus, and the way in which we nurture students by creating a supportive and friendly environment. My sincere congratulations to them.

“The key is working collaboratively at a local, national and international level. We prize this very much at Leeds and our success in this and other rankings is a testament to that."
