Welsh University of the Year 2018
22 September 2017
Cardiff University has climbed 11 places and been named Welsh University of the Year in The Times & The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018.
Cardiff is ranked 35th and regains top spot in Wales - a position it’s lost only once since the Good University Guide was launched 20 years ago.
It’s also the first time Cardiff has been officially named Welsh University of the Year.
“A credit to Wales”
Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan said: “It’s extremely pleasing to have achieved a rise of 11 places in this year’s Good University Guide.
“As a University we want to be a credit to Wales and key to the economic and social success of the nation which is why it is pleasing we’ve been named Welsh University of the Year...”
Cardiff University’s ambition is to be ranked in the top 20 in the Good University Guide.
Professor Riordan added: “Whilst there is still progress to be made, this year’s result and others show we are heading in the right direction. The key thing for us as a University is to remain focused, maintain our momentum and, ultimately, realise our ambition.”
