Sociology, Economics and Psychology at Bradford rise up in the university rankings as Bradford climbs 15 places


The University has leapt fifteen places in the latest Complete University Guide, with sociology, psychology and economics, all subjects in the Faculty of Social Sciences rising up to sixteen places on the league tables.

Sociology has risen sixteen places, up from 74th to 48th position, out of 95 with high levels of student satisfaction, research quality and graduate prospects. Psychology has risen ten places from 82nd to 72nd position out of 114 institutions with high quality of research and graduate prospects. Economics has risen eleven places from 68th to 55th position out of 77 institutions, with very high levels of student satisfaction.

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.
