Royal Holloway has risen five places to become a top 20 UK university in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.

At position 19 in the national rankings, the College has also been shortlisted for University of the Year 2020 and is ranked fourth in the London rankings out of 23 universities. Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide, describes Royal Holloway as “…ambitious for the future, ambitious for its students and delivering on all fronts.”

The rankings, which will be published on Sunday, 22 September, provide a comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain. The ratings include the performance of universities in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS), and statistics on degree results, employment prospects and course completion rates. 

Paul Layzell, Principal, said: “We are delighted to be recognised as a top 20 UK university in this prestigious league table. Rising five places this year and being shortlisted for University of the Year reflects our commitment to our students and the quality of the education we offer here at Royal Holloway.

“The distinguishing features of our university are our strong sense of community, and the academic experience we offer to students delivered through high quality of teaching and world-class research. By bringing these elements together, our goal is to be a source of inspiration for our students who strive to achieve excellence. This ranking, and our shortlisted position, are a clear endorsement of our approach and are a testament to the outstanding contribution and achievements of our students and staff.” Discover more.
