The University of Cambridge secured top ranking for the fifth consecutive year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 league tables, and the Faculty of Law was ranked No. 1 for Law.
The awards rank institutions with reference to a wide variety of criteria, including UCAS tariff points, completion rates, facilities spend, academic success, graduate prospects, student/staff ratio, research quality and student satisfaction rates.
Topping the table for Law, the Faculty beat the University of Oxford into second place, with the University of St Andrews placing third.
The Faculty’s strategic aim is to maintain its position as a leading international law school that is at the forefront of legal research and in which connections between research and teaching are highly valued. Faculty level teaching is supplemented by the College-based supervision system, which provides an unrivalled level of interaction between students and lecturers. The Faculty is gratified that this approach is being recognised by external assessors over a wide range of assessment criteria.
