This is the worst uni in the UK, according to The Guardian


Share This Article:

Glyndwr University has just been awarded a title that no university ever wants to claim.

In The Guardian’s 2018 University league tables, the Welsh uni ranks dead last, with the paper ranking it at the bottom of its league table for the second consecutive year.

Unsurprisingly, Cambridge and Oxford finish atop the list with Guardian scores of 100 and 98.1, respectively. Glyndwr’s score is a lowly 30.4.

The Guardian takes entry requirements, student satisfaction rates, student-to-staff ratios and percentages of graduates who have entered a career within six months of graduation into account when calculating its score.

According to The Complete University Guide, the University of Suffolk is the worst university in the UK. However, it is pegged at 115 out of 121 qualified universities on The Guardian’s list.

Glyndwr’s most popular demographic of students are those that are 30 years old and over. Those students comprise 34.38% of the student body.

The school has a lot of work to do in terms of raising its student satisfaction rating, as only six universities have lower rates of students that are satisfied with their courses:

- University of the Arts London – 66.2%

- London School of Economics – 75.4%

- West London – 76.7%

- Bucks New University – 76.8%

- Cardiff Met – 77.8%

- Glyndwr – 78.3%
