The University’s position in the 2017 Guardian University Guide remains unchanged at 59th.
The table is based on the performance of institutions in subject tables, which are put together using eight measures. Measures relate to both input (for example, expenditure per student) and output (for example, graduate employability). Three of the eight measures are taken from the National Student Survey.
For the third year running, the Guardian has ranked Liverpool as the top place in Britain to study Anatomy/Physiology. Other notable subject rankings include Nursing & Midwifery (5th), Dentistry (6th), and Philosophy, Forensic Science/Archaeology and Earth/Marine Sciences (7th).
Liverpool is ranked 24th in the Russell Group of institutions. Eight Russell Group institutions have improved their rank, 12 have dropped their rank, and four remain unchanged. Leeds has climbed seven places to 16th, while Newcastle has dropped eight places to 37th. The top performer is Cambridge.
Anita Wright, Director of Strategic Planning, said: “Whilst we would have liked to see our performance in this league table improve, it is good news to see a number of our subject areas continuing to perform well. Our strengths remain in staff-student ratio and spend per student but to make a significant impact on our future position we need to focus on the National Student Survey and value-added.
“Improving subject performance against our peers is a key element to delivering our new Strategy 2026, and as such the areas that need to improve will feature in plans for the coming years.”
