School is 2nd in Sunday-Times UK university rankings.
The School of Education at the University of Leeds is ranked 2nd in the UK in the Sunday Times universities' league table for overall student satisfaction and performance published on Tuesday (14th Sept 2010):
This is a tremendous result for both staff and students in the School and justifiably reflects the emphasis we place on providing the highest quality student experience for all our students, undergraduates, postgraduates and trainee teachers. It is excellent news for the School and for all its graduates who go on to successful careers.
The result builds on a series of top rankings recently enjoyed by the School of Education in other educational surveys grading British universities. Following the School's top 5 ranking for the quality of its research in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/table/2008/dec/18/rae-2008-education, the School has also recently earned a top 5 ranking in the latest Guardian Survey on Education performance and a place in the top 10 from the Times League Table.
The Sunday Times result also puts the School of Education at Leeds ahead of several British Universities which gained top 10 places in the European Rankings.
Head of School, Tom Roper, says:
"It is really great when, by simply doing your best and what should be done, you get national recognition for your efforts in this way. Congratulations are due to all colleagues, both academic and support who have worked tirelessly to help achieve these excellent results."
