Yesterday, The Guardian released their university guide for 2012.
Cambridge came out on top this year, knocking Oxford into second after a six-year reign in pole position.
You can view the main league table, as well as look at course specific ratings. There is a potted lowdown on the main features and information for each university. There is even a league table for specialist institutions.
Worth noting is the range of useful articles The Guardian also published with the guide. Here are some of the pieces for hopeful students this year and next:
- Want a place? Get the insider knowledge – Tips on where to study, how to sell yourself, and so on.
- What every student should know – From the cost of textbook to the troubles of timetables, current students give the advice they wish they’d had when they started.
- ‘It was the ice cream van that swung it’ – The importance of open days.
- Is a degree worth the debt? – A look at what financial help is available to struggling students.
- University? Colleges offer students the best of both worlds – University isn’t for everyone. But that doesn’t mean you should set your sights low.
- University guide 2012: the timetable – When to apply & when those decisions should come through.
- Fees in the UK 2011-12 and 2012-13 – Fees depending on where you’re from and where you’re studying.
