On the 2nd June, the Guardian newspaper released its University league table for 2015. The guide sees UEA’s position in the table rise from its previous position of 17th to 14th; the highest position that UEA has ever finished in a university league table.
Speaking of his delight of UEA’s ranking in the Guardian, Prof Edward Acton, Vice-Chancellor of UEA, said: ‘I am absolutely thrilled to see we have achieved UEA’s highest ever ranking in UK university league tables. To be named as Britain’s 14th university is testament to our commitment to improving and supporting all aspects of the university, from top-class research and academics to a student experience that is second to none.
‘It is very pleasing to see last year’s league table trajectory continuing. I am extremely proud of all UEA colleagues, students and the students’ union for all they do to make UEA such a splendid place in which to live, work and study.’
These results follow the university’s rise in the Complete University Guide’s league table which saw UEA finish 15th as well as UEA finishing 3rd for student satisfaction according to Time Higher Education.
