The rankings, researched and published by the Economist magazine, assessed “which universities make the biggest positive impact on their students” – with the University of Warwick placed the 3rd highest in the Russell Group – ahead of Cambridge - and 17th overall in the UK.
The Economist found that University of Warwick graduates are likely to earn over £1,200 per annum more than expected – demonstrating the extra value the university provides to students.
Commenting on the findings the University of Warwick’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stuart Croft, said:
“The University of Warwick provides students from all backgrounds access to an exceptional university education. For the Economist to place Warwick in the top three Russell Group universities in providing extra value to students is welcome recognition of the dedication of our academic and administrative staff.
“As we look forward to the start of the new academic year, we will continue in our efforts to provide our students with an education that will have a positive and long-lasting impact”.
Announcing the rankings the Economist said “Most published rankings tell you a great deal about an institution’s reputation, or how often its researchers publish in top academic journals. However, they don’t necessarily answer the question that prospective students really care about: what they have to gain by attending”.
