WHAT THEY CLAIMED . . . AND THE TRUTH

Scottish Daily Mail - - Life -

TEESSIDE UNIVER­SITY

Claim: ‘Top univer­sity in Eng­land for long-term grad­u­ate prospects’

Truth: Gov­ern­ment data does not prove Teesside is top for grad­u­ate des­ti­na­tions or earn­ings.

FAL­MOUTH UNIVER­SITY

Claim: ‘Num­ber one arts univer­sity’

Truth: Named top of a set of just five spe­cial­ist arts uni­ver­si­ties in three league ta­bles. Other larger uni­ver­si­ties of­fer­ing arts sub­jects are ranked higher.

UNIVER­SITY OF EAST ANGLIA

Claim: ‘In the top five for stu­dent sat­is­fac­tion’

Truth: In the top nine for stu­dent sat­is­fac­tion last year – but only among non-spe­cial­ist uni­ver­si­ties in Eng­land.

UNIVER­SITY OF STRATH­CLYDE

Claim: ‘Ranked num­ber one in the UK for physics’

Truth: Claim based on gov­ern­ment re­search scores which did not for­mally rank uni­ver­si­ties – so Strath­clyde could not be de­scribed as ‘num­ber one’.
