University of Cambridge tops ‘Table of Tables’ 2016

Published: Saturday, 17 October 2015   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

The University of Cambridge has continued to excel in University rankings, having secured top spot in the Times Higher Education ‘Table of Tables’ for a fifth year running.

The table – collated from the UK’s three major domestic university rankings – saw Cambridge fend of competition from the universities of Oxford and St Andrews for top spot.

All three universities occupy the same positions in the 2016 ranking as they did in the listing 12 months ago.

Imperial College London in fourth is also unmoved, although the university that it shared that spot with last year – the London School of Economics – has dropped to eighth.

The main movers in the top ten saw Durham University move up a place to fifth, while the universities of Warwick and Surrey both rose two places to sixth and seventh respectively.

Completing the top ten are the Universities of Exeter and Bath – the former was unmoved from a year ago while the latter dropped three places. 

Cambridge topped the Table of Tables after taking first position in both The Complete University Guide and the Good University Guide.

These rankings, published by The Guardian and the combined Times and Sunday Times respectively, focus on many different aspects of university life and are widely used among academics as a measure of performance.

Coventry University was the first post-92 institution to feature in the table this year, taking 23rd position following an impressive outcome in The Guardian’s ranking.

The University of Sussex and King’s College London returned to the 2016 edition, an achievement of notable importance for Sussex since the institution has not appeared in the top 30 since 2012.

In terms of top performers, The University of Kent rose four places to 20th while the universities of Southampton and Leeds both climbed three places to 14th and 18th respectively.
