The prestigious Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide has placed St George’s University of London in the top spot for employment prospects across the UK and in the top ten of universities listed in the capital.
This is the first year that St George’s has appeared in the Times/Sunday Times league table and it is placed 48th nationally and 9th in London.
Notably, the table places St George’s in London as 1st for graduate prospects and 7th for ‘teaching excellence’ of the 22 universities listed in the capital.
The league table is made up of nine indicators that include student satisfaction with teaching quality and their wider university experience, research quality, graduate prospects, and degree completion rates.
Professor Peter Kopelman, Principal, said: “I welcome with great pleasure St George’s entry for this year in the Times/Sunday Times University tables.
“As the only free standing health sciences university that includes medicine, I am proud of our place in the top 10 of London universities.
“Importantly, our impressive course completion rates rank us in the top 5, and our graduate prospects number one in London. These results underline the excellence in both teaching and research at St George’s.”
The editors of the guide stated: “St George’s is the only free-standing medical school in the University of London and the only one in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide league table.
“It appears in its own right for the first time this year because it qualifies for five of the subject tables, not just medicine.”
The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide will be published on September20 2015 and provides students and their parents with an invaluable first reference point on the path to finding a university place.
