The worst university in the country, according to the Guardian

Another week, another shamefaced university coming out bottom in a league table – this time, in that complied by the Guardian. It’s all change at the bottom of the big league, with the Complete University Guide’s last placed University of East London having faced a (relatively moderate, but we’ll allow them it anyway) surge up the table to 106th place, which happily takes it out of the bottom ten. Hey. We've all got to start somewhere. Taking the dubious mantle of last place in Guardian league-table-land is Bucks New University, whose students need 258 UCAS points to get a place, are 67.9% satisfied during their studies, and have a 53.5% chance of having started their career six months after graduation. We don’t think it sounds too terrible, in all honesty. Bucks New has stiff competition from London Met, Trinity St. David, Leeds Beckett and West of Scotland, all of whom were vying for (or possibly actively trying to avoid) the bottom spot. At the other end of the scale was the entirely predictable University of Cambridge, followed by (you guessed it) Oxford - the regukar top spot botherers taking the gold and silver medal respectively. But we don’t care overly about that. The bottom ten universities are: 110. Aberystwyth University 111. London South Bank University 112. Newman University, Birmingham 113. The University of South Wales 114. Southampton Solent University 115. The University of the West of Scotland 116. Leeds Beckett University 117. Trinity Saint David 118. London Metropolitan University 119. Bucks New University If you want to see how badly your university did according to the Guardian bods, click here. Good luck!
