The university placed in the top five in the prestigious guide's Northern ranking and climbed 17 places overall, up from 77th to joint-60th in the UK.

The University of Hull climbed 17 places overall in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.​

The University of Hull has been ranked in the top five in the north by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.

The university placed in the top five in the prestigious guide's Northern ranking and climbed 17 places overall, up from 77th to joint-60th in the UK.

The rankings focus on nine indicators, including student satisfaction, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend and degree completion rates.

Graduate career prospects were above the national average, with student experience leaping 36 places alongside other positives for degree results and student/staff ratios.

This latest achievement builds on the University of Hull’s earlier success in the 2021 Guardian University Rankings, in which it rose 23 places, and the Complete University Guide, which saw a 17-place rise.

Professor Susan Lea, vice-chancellor at the University of Hull, said: “Our recent successes in the rankings, most recently in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021, are testimony to the dedication of both our staff and students.

“Taking our place in the top five universities, and as the highest riser, in the Northern ranking comes at a wonderful time when we are welcoming new and returning students back to campus."

The Times and The Sunday Times have produced university guides since 1993 and 1998 respectively.
