UWL is the highest climber in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide

The University of West London (UWL) has recorded the biggest rise of any university in the UK in the prestigious The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020, climbing an impressive 31 places to number 52 nationally and entering the top 10 London universities in 8th place.

These excellent results come on the back of the career-focused University achieving record rates of student satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey.

Professor Peter John, Vice-Chancellor of UWL, said:

“Over the last few years we have been on a real journey of transformation to become the top modern university in London.

We have invested almost £150 million to create a modern campus that is jammed packed with facilities. And of course we have invested significantly in student services, quality teaching and extra-curricular activities to create a supportive learning and social environment with a real community feel.

But the real secret to our success is our students – we have one of the most diverse student bodies in the UK who are full of potential, passion and energy.  By listening to our students all-year round, we can deliver on the things that matter to them, creating an excellent student experience and providing them with the skills they need to build a successful career.

Alistair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020, said: “The University of West London has risen more than 30 places in the national rankings this year, entering the top 10 London universities in 8th place. It is ranked fourth nationally for both student experience and student satisfaction with teaching quality, with the highest scores for these two measures across all the London institutions.”
