UCLan said: “We’re pleased to see a small improvement in our league table position this year. As demonstrated by our fantastic five nominations in this year’s Times Higher Education awards; the opening of our new Student Centre and University Square; the development of a new School of Veterinary Medicine; and our impressive results in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework, we remain absolutely committed to continuing to enhance our students’ experience.”


The University of Manchester’s graduates have been ranked as the No 1 most targeted by the UK’s top employers in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers 2021-22. Similarly to Lancaster, Manchester performed well in the research department, going up six places up the research quality index rankings to reach seventh place.  

Meanwhile, Liverpool John Moores has risen 20 places and Manchester Metropolitan has climbed ten places in this year’s national ranking, both thanks to significant improvements in this year’s National Student Survey.

The new edition of The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023, a free 96-page supplement, will be published this weekend in The Sunday Times (September 18). It provides the definitive rankings for UK universities and the most comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain.
