The University of the West of Scotland has jumped up the rankings in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide league tables for 2019.
We’ve climbed eight places this year to become Scotland’s highest-ranked modern university, which is fantastic news and a true testament to hard work and dedication from students and colleagues across the institution.
Our UK ranking jumped from joint 100th previously to 92nd in the latest edition of the league table, which has also seen us placed 9th. in Scotland.
UWS have excelled in the Good University Guide’s metrics, ranking in the top three of Scottish universities for teaching excellence, and in the top five for student experience and graduate prospects.
Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal and Vice-Chancellor stated
I’m immensely proud of our performance in the rankings, particularly now as we’re recognised as Scotland’s leading modern university. It’s also pleasing to see that our commitment to teaching excellence has been recognised, especially given our focus on being a 21st Century university which provides student-centred, personalised and distinctive, learning and teaching experiences.
We cannot underestimate this achievement for the University, and I’d like to both congratulate and thank everyone involved.
