The St Mary's University has moved 16 places upwards on local rankings in the The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023.
This is the highest position that the university has ever held in this guide, ranking 51st nationally, out of 135 institutions.
It was two years ago that St Mary’s was ranked number one in London for course satisfaction and teaching satisfaction in the Guardian University Guide in 2020.
The annual ranking, which looks at how universities perform across a range of key performance indicators including teaching excellence, graduate outcomes, research output, and student experience, saw St Mary’s rank 51 nationally, an improvement from 67th place last year.
In a statement, St Mary’s Vice-Chancellor Anthony McClaran has shared:
We are delighted that the efforts of our university community have been recognised.
McClaran has highlighted that this is proof of the institution's dedication to its staff and students.
St Mary’s Provost, Prof Symeon Dagkas shared that the university had been founded as a teaching institution, hence students learn from experts who are passionate about their subjects. Those experts, in turn, offer the support needed to help students flourish, and teaching remains in the university’s DNA.
Dagkas said the institution is pleased to have been recognised in these rankings.
The university currently has 6,000 students and it has been confirmed that there are 98% of St Mary’s graduates that are in employment.
