The Guardian University Guide

Using eight different criteria, each weighted between 5 and 17 per cent, The Guardians ranking uses eight different criteria and unlike other British university rankings, research output is not included as a measure. The Guardian ranking includes a value-added factor which compares students degree results with their entry qualifications. The overall ranking is based on an average across the subjects rather than on institutional level statistics. The eight criteria used in the ranking are:
•Entry score (17%);
•Feedback – as rated by graduates of the course (5%);
•Job prospects (17%);
•Overall quality – final-year students opinions about the overall quality of their course;
•Spending per student (17%);
•Staff/student ratio (17%);
•Teaching quality – as rated by graduates of the course (10%); and
•Value added (17%).
