University of Hertfordshire jumps in Complete University Guide league table

14 June 2022

The University of Hertfordshire has jumped up 12 places in the 2023 Complete University Guide league table.

The University now sits at 68th in the country, the third highest riser in the East of England this year.

In subject tables the University now ranks in the top 5 in the UK, and 2nd in the East of England, for Paramedic Science – a leap of 22 places. As the first university in the country to offer paramedic science degrees, this reflects our long history of high-quality teaching and industry partnerships, leading to a 100% rating for graduate prospects for the paramedics we train.

The University is 5th in the East of England in five subject areas, and second only to the University of Cambridge in five further subjects, with particularly strong ratings across Engineering.

The Complete University Guide compares over 130 UK universities and 74 subjects, ranked by 10 quality measures important to students, including: student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, the student/staff ratio, spending on services and facilities, completion rates and graduate job prospects.

The new guide acknowledges the University’s continued investment in our facilities (remaining in the top 10% nationally for facilities spend), including significant campus developments as well as careers, health and counselling services. It also reflects significant improvements in student satisfaction, research quality – as demonstrated by the recent REF results – and graduate prospects, building on the University’s reputation for creating work-ready graduates.

Professor Quintin McKellar, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire, said: “I am delighted to see such a significant jump up the rankings this year, which is testament to the continued hard work and commitment of our staff and the Students’ Union.

“We are continuing to cement our reputation for top-class teaching, facilities and business partnerships, which provide students with the skills, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit that employers are looking for – so they can go on to forge successful careers and make change in their chosen field”.
