The University has risen 21 places in the league table in two years

The Complete University Guide 2019, published today (25 April), shows the University is ranked 42nd out of 131 UK institutions.

It follows last year’s rise of 11 places, meaning the University has jumped 21 places in the last two years.

The Complete University Guide ranks universities on ten measures which include: student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects and spending on student facilities.

The climb means NTU is now the UK’s top modern university (that is, created as a University since 1992), according to the league table. This is another accolade for the University in what is the 175th anniversary of its founding college opening its doors in 1843.

As well as this, the University has made the top ten for six of its subjects: Agriculture and Forestry, Art & Design, Building, Forensic Science, Land and Property Management and Librarianship and Information Management.

Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University, said: “This ranking is further confirmation that NTU is the vanguard of teaching intensive universities in the UK delivering outstanding outcomes with and for its students.”
