Aberdeen up two places in university rankings

The University of Aberdeen has risen two places in the latest The Complete University Guide league table.

Of the individual subjects ranked within the top 10 in the UK, Aberdeen boasts six - Anatomy & Physiology, Creative Writing, Land & Property Management, Law, Linguistics, and Sports Science.

Sports Science was the biggest mover in Aberdeen's top 10 subjects - rising 14 places to eighth in the UK. Linguistics went up eight places to sixth in the UK; Anatomy & Physiology went up seven places to seventh in the UK; and Law went up three places to ninth in the UK. Creative Writing remains at 10th in the UK for consecutive year, whilst Land & Property Management also holds steady at second in the UK. 

Overall, the University went up or stayed the same in seven of the 10 categories used to assess each university.

Professor Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, said: “The higher education sector in this country continues to be an incredibly competitive environment and to that end, it is encouraging to see we are holding our own, and indeed improving in the overall UK picture.

“We know that league tables such as this one play a big role in influencing prospective students, so to that end it is important that we perform well in them.

“The reason we are successful is that, as a university, we are committed to working together to achieve world class teaching, learning and research which makes a difference in our world as well as delivering a unique and fulfilling student experience.”
