The University of Sunderland has climbed five places in 12 months in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
According to the latest tables, the University moved up from last year’s ranking of 98th in the UK to this year’s joint 93rd place alongside Staffordshire University.
Last week, the University also moved up the league table rankings in the Guardian University Guide 2024 to 49, our highest position in 10 years. It is a rise of one place compared to last year meaning the University has retained its place as one of the UK’s Top 50 Universities.
For the first time ever, Sunderland made it into the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2023. The University was ranked between 1,001-1,200 out of 1,799 Institutions across the world. In the 2023 edition of the QS World University Rankings by Subject, the University was highlighted for best performance in Hospitality and Leisure Management.
Sir David Bell, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Sunderland, said: “There are so many league tables available these days, all using slightly different criteria, so it is very important to treat them with caution, not least because our position in them can fluctuate from year to year. In addition, they are only one indicator of what happens in the University and cannot capture the excellent work that happens, day in and day out, here at the University of Sunderland.”
