NUA ranked in the Good University Guide

Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) has been ranked 61st out of 127 institutions nationwide in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016, after a change in restrictions allowed it to be included for the first time.

Professor Neil Powell, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic) at NUA, says: “NUA is delighted to be in the Sunday Times Guide and to be above its specialist rivals such as the University of the Arts London. Our position in the top 10 modern universities confirms our potential to be a world leading specialist university within the city.”

The Good University Guide is published on 20 September, containing profiles of all universities and the leading colleges of higher education. The league table is made up of nine indicators including student satisfaction with teaching quality and their wider university experience, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend, and degree completion rates.
