UEA has lost its place as a top 20 UK university in the recently published 2020 Complete University Guide.
Coming in at 21st place, UEA has fallen by seven positions from it’s previous ranking of 14th in the 2019 Guide. This is the first time since the 2013 Guide that UEA has failed to reach the top 20.
The Complete University Guide rankings are based on an overall score calculated from factors including student satisfaction and research quality, with UEA scoring lower on entry requirements and graduate prospects compared to similarly ranked competitors.
This 2020 guide sees Cambridge University maintain pole position, with Oxford University in second place. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities have seen a significant jump up the rankings placing them both within the top 20 universities in the UK. The Guide still places UEA ahead of leading Russell Group Universities including York, Newcastle and King’s College London.
