League Tables: Deciding on the best university trajectory on leaving school

 
There are arguably three globally respected guides in ranking British Universities:

The Guardian University Rankings;

The Complete University Guide Rankings; and, probably the best known,

Sunday Times Rankings

The Times Higher Education journal separately defines the status of British Universities in a global context – and also makes a calculation of the most valued University brands for securing places in Industry.

Each of these five league tables use different methodologies to determine universities rank.

We have provided a snapshot of the latest of these reports below to help you weigh up options.
