Cardiff Metropolitan University is celebrating another strong performance in the Guardian University Guide this year.
The university has climbed 10 places and is now ranked 62nd out of 121 in the UK, and third in Wales. This follows on from its highest ever rise – 41 places – in last year’s guide.
The Guardian’s annual league table draws upon several nationally recognised measures such as the Graduate Outcomes Survey and the National Student Survey in addition to taking the average entry tariff required into account. The Guide is one of the three main UK undergraduate league tables used by students and their parents when considering their choice of university.
President and Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff Metropolitan University, Professor Cara Aitchison, said:
“This year’s success in the Guardian University Guide is testament to the values and efforts of our One Cardiff Met community which, in the most challenging circumstances, have ensured a thriving environment for all our students and staff.
“I am delighted that this news follows so much other good news for the University. This week we were shortlisted for the University of the Year award in the highly prestigious Times Higher Education awards 2021.
“We have also seen significant progress in the other major league tables with the second highest rise in the UK in The Complete University Guide 2022 and the institution’s highest ever rise in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021 as well as being awarded the title of Welsh University of the Year 2021 by the Times and Sunday Times.
“I would like to thank every member of our staff across the university for playing their part in making today’s excellent news.”
