Music at Cardiff rises in league tables

24 May 2016

Cardiff University Music Building

Our undergraduate music course has risen to 15th place in the latest Guardian university league tables published this week.

Rankings are determined by a rating of excellence based on a combination of factors, such as staff-student ratio, employability, and the results of the National Student Survey (NSS). Elements drawn from the NSS include the percentage of our final-year students satisfied with the overall quality of our programme (92.9%) and with the teaching here (96.5%).

We also recently rose from 19th to 13th in The Times’ annual university guide.

Professor Kenneth Hamilton, Head of the School of Music, said: “I’m pleased to see our course recognised in these rankings as being among the very best on offer in the UK. The improvement in all rankings, as well as in our National Student Survey scores, is testament to our commitment to providing an excellent student experience.”
