Bradford rises in the Complete University Guide


The University of Bradford has leapt fifteen places in the latest Complete University Guide.

Bradford was one of just a handful to rise by more than 10 places in the Complete University Guide table for 2016. It now stands at joint 62nd out of 126 universities. Last year the university was ranked 77th, which was in turn a rise of six places from the previous year's placing of 83rd.

The rise reflects the changes and improvements that Bradford is making in partnership with students, to support them in reaching their potential.

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Professor Brian Cantor, said: “I am pleased to see that the University of Bradford has risen 15 places in the latest Complete University Guide.

“We continue to enhance the student experience and are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and entrepreneurship. Our teaching and research addresses 21st century issues and our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to make a difference in the world.”

The guide is based on ten measures: student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student: staff ratio, spending on academic services, spending on student facilities, good honours degrees achieved, graduate prospects and completion.
