The Complete University Guide, compiled by Mayfield University Consultants, has been published annually since 2007. The ranking uses ten criteria including entry standards, graduate prospects and academic services spending. Using a statistical technique called the Z-transformation, the results are then weighted and summed to give each university a total score out of 1,000.
In the overall rankings, two of the institutions we work with feature in the top 10: Imperial College London retaining its position in 4th and Lancaster University retaining its position in 9th.
