Teesside is now ranked joint 68th out of 121 institutions in the annual league table that uses statistics from a variety of sources to rank universities in the UK.

The league table is designed to assist students in making a decision on which university they should choose and Teesside is one of the highest climbers having risen 34 places since 2017.

Eleven subjects saw an improved ranking position compared to 2018, with a number seeing significant improvements. Teesside ranked 5th (of 81 institutions) for ‘Music’.

In addition, ‘Art’, ‘Biosciences’, ‘Engineering: Mechanical’, ‘English & Creative Writing’, ‘Health Professions’ and ‘History’ each featured in the top third of institutions in their subject table.

It is the latest in a series of improvements in UK universities rankings for Teesside University across a number of national league tables.

The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2018 placed Teesside at 34 out of 116 institutions, climbing 24 places from last year’s survey. The University rose nine places in the Complete University Guide 2019, the highest climber across the five North East universities and The Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2018 saw Teesside University rise to 15 out of 126 higher education institutions in the University of the Year category, climbing 51 places on 2017.

Professor Paul Croney, Vice-Chancellor of Teesside University, said: “We are very pleased to achieve another significant rise in our ranking in the Guardian University Guide. Our rankings in every league table published over the past 18 months have been on an upward trajectory. It is gratifying to see all the hard work of our staff paying off for the benefit of our students.

“It also reflects the investment in the campus to ensure our students have one of the most flexible and innovative learning environments for their studies.

“Our £300m Campus masterplan is taking shape with the new Business School on our main site in Middlesbrough due to be complete and open in the Autumn, the National Horizons Centre for biosciences in Darlington next year and work will begin shortly on the Student Life building.

“For Teesside University to score so positively in league tables covering our teaching, research and student experience is evidence our path of continuous improvement, striving for excellence in all that we do, is working.”
