Turning the tables

The University is again riding high in national league tables. Following the recent survey of the UK's top companies which placed University graduates second only to Cambridge in employability, the Guardian newspaper has placed Leeds second in its overall table of subject teaching. Of the forty subjects assessed, fourteen Leeds departments were ramked in the top ten locations for students. Cambridge scored fifteen, Nottingham also fourteen and Oxford thirteen.

"This reflects admirably on the wide range of disciplines taught at Leeds and demonstrates the provision of high-quality teaching is wholly consistent with the ethos of a research-led university," said Pro-Vice-Chancellor for teaching and learning Professor John Macklin.
