University of York

University of York Good University Guide

York has climbed a place in our league table this year, despite slipping slightly in our research rankings after publication of the new research assessments last December.

Although more than 80% of the work submitted for the 2014 Research Excellence Framework was considered world-leading or internationally excellent, York submitted a lower proportion of its academics for assessment than most of the leading universities. It drops eight places in our research rankings to 17th as a result.
