No.1 for Languages in the UK

9 September 2023

School of Modern Languages is No.1 for languages in the UK, according to The Guardian University Guide 2024 published today (Saturday 9 September).

According to the Guardian ranking, the University of St Andrews is the top university in the UK.

It is the second year in succession that St Andrews has led the Guardian ranking, which assesses the performance and strengths of all 130 UK universities.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Sally Mapstone FRSE said: “It is a great compliment to all of our fantastic academic and professional services staff, and our remarkable students.

The Guardian ranks on the factors which, it argues, combine to demonstrate a strong academic student experience. Our preeminent position is as much about the commitment of our staff to deliver a very special blend of research-led teaching as it is about the hard work and achievements of St Andrews students.”

The Guide ranks universities by the strength of student satisfaction, expenditure per student, student/staff ratio, career prospects, entry tariff, value-added and continuation.
