Strathclyde rises up the Guardian University Guide 2021


The University of Strathclyde has been ranked 15th in the prestigious Guardian University Guide for 2021, an impressive rise of 36 places on last year's ranking.

As well as ranking the best UK universities, The Guardian also ranks individual subjects. Within Strathclyde Business School, three subjects were ranked in the UK top ten: Economics was ranked 4th in the UK; Accounting and Finance was ranked 4th in the UK; and Business, Management and Marketing was ranked 10th in the UK. Hospitality, Event Management and Tourism was ranked 20th in the UK and 4th in Scotland. Further information can be found here.

The Guardian University Guide looks at undergraduate courses and how likely courses are to deliver a 'positive, all-round' experience to future students and assesses how past students have fared to do so. The ranking is made up of a number of indicators including student satisfaction, scores based on courses, teaching and feeback, as well as the proportion of graduates in employment or further study after graduation. Bringing these measures together, The Guardian gets an overall score for each department and ranks departments against this.
