Study Group working with the UK’s leading universities

Study Group is proud to announce we are working with 12 of the UK’s top 50 universities, as revealed by The Complete University Guide 2018. In addition, five of these are in the top 20.

Ranking criteria

The Complete University Guide was first published in 2007 and is compiled each year by Mayfield University Consultants. The ranking is based on ten criteria: student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student: staff ratio, spending on academic services, spending on student facilities, good honours degrees, graduate prospects and completion.

As well as the guide’s main table of the UK’s top universities, there are also subject-specific tables, and once again Study Group is working with the best of the bunch.
