The University of Reading has been ranked 25th in the 2013 Guardian University Guide, published today (22 May 2012).

The University climbed seven places from last year’s position (32nd), with particularly strong performances seen in the subjects of agriculture and food (1 in its subject table), archaeology (5), earth and marine sciences (3), education (3) and art and design (3).

Vice-Chancellor, Sir David Bell, said: “The University of Reading continues to rank among the leading research-intensive universities in the UK. While it is pleasing to feature so well in the Guardian league table, this represents just one window into the life and work of our University. It is though gratifying to see how this ranking reaffirms the high regard in which our students hold the quality of teaching, as well as the overall student experience, at the University. It also reflects the strong employability record of our graduates in recent years.”

“While league table are useful tools, prospective students should gauge which university is right for them by visiting their short list of universities, meeting current students, viewing the facilities and talking to staff.”
