Warwick is UK’s 6th best university: the Times

The University of Warwick has risen two places from last year to sixth position on the Times and Sunday Times’ University League Table 2016.

The news arrived under a week after the QS annual World University Rankings ranked Warwick as one of the world’s top 50 universities. Warwick rose 13 places to 48th position.

The Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 is to be published over the course of three days, beginning this weekend in the Sunday Times (September 20th 2015).

The full league table will be published online for members of the Times and Sunday Times to see.

Warwick’s vice-chancellor, Professor Sir Nigel Thrift, said: “This year every single national and international university league table has brought good news for Warwick and this is obviously even more welcome news in this Warwick’s 50th anniversary year.

“This consistent endorsement of Warwick’s achievements as a university are a tribute to the work of Warwick staff and students that has underpinned that success.”

Peter Dunn, director of press and policy at the University of Warwick, said: “Warwick has consistently been ranked in the top 10 of every UK university league table.

“While you have to take each individual league table with a pinch of salt, as they each differ in how they calculate rankings, the fact that we are in top ten of all of them suggests Warwick is indeed highly regarded and will continue to be highly attractive to students.

“What is even more interesting is our significant rise in international university league tables (last week for instance it was revealed that we are now in the top 50 in the QS). This will significantly enhance our already strong international reputation.”

The Times and Sunday Times said: “It is another stellar year for universities in the West Midlands, with the University of Warwick – winner of The Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year award last year – jumping up another two places in the league table to sixth place nationally.

“It remains the top university in the West Midlands.”
