UEA has been ranked 15th in this year’s Times Higher Education ‘Table of Tables’. The table seeks to combine the results of the three primary rankings of British universities – The Guardian’s rankings, The Complete University Guide, and The Times’ own Good University Guide.

The table was first produced in 2008 due to criticism from various institutions that different tables place greater value on different qualities, such as the Guardian’s inclusion of a ‘spend per student’ category or the Complete University Guide’s more succinct ranking based on solely four factors.

This year’s placement is one up from last years ranking, and sees UEA placed above several ‘elite’ Russell Group institutions such as Kings College London, The University of Birmingham and The University of Nottingham.
