University of Leicester moves up league table
The latest edition of the Complete University Guide, released today, confirms Leicester’s status as a top-20 university. In the 2012 table, Leicester has risen three places to be ranked 20th in the UK out of 116 institutions.
The Guide is based on data obtained from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) in nine areas including entry standards, student-staff ratios, facilities spending, graduate prospects, completion rates and overseas student enrolments.
Leicester is already ranked in the top 20 by other league tables including those published by the Guardian, The Times and Times Higher Education.
