Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

» THE Uni­ver­sity of Glouces­ter­shire has dropped 11 places in the lat­est it­er­a­tion of the Com­plete Uni­ver­sity Guide’s Uni­ver­sity League Ta­ble for 2020.

The uni­ver­sity has been ranked 99 out of 131 in the re­search-weighted rank­ings.

It is ranked 10 out of 12 for uni­ver­si­ties in the South West with Bath, Ex­eter and Bris­tol mak­ing the top three.

It is the Uni­ver­sity of Glouces­ter­shire’s low­est po­si­tion to date in the rank­ings. Their high­est was 58 back in 2009.

De­spite the rank­ings, the Uni­ver­sity of Glouces­ter­shire scored three per­cent­age points ahead of the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion average of 83 per cent, the uni­ver­sity’s best re­sult for at least a decade.

The Com­plete Uni­ver­sity Guide said: “It has achieved some­thing it didn’t man­age last year by ap­pear­ing in the top 10 for the Hos­pi­tal­ity, Leisure, Recre­ation and Tourism League Ta­ble.”

A spokesman for the uni­ver­sity said: “We would encourage ap­pli­cants not to rely only on league tables, but to visit us so that they can meet staff and stu­dents and get a more rounded pic­ture of the type of uni­ver­sity we are and the qual­ity and range of ex­pe­ri­ence we pro­vide for our stu­dents.”
