Royal Holloway, University of London has risen three places to 34 in the latest independent league table, The Complete University Guide. An internationally respected ranking of UK universities, the guide assesses important areas of performance including student satisfaction, research quality and entry requirements.

In the last year, Royal Holloway’s students have benefitted from a number of initiatives from the university. From the introduction of cutting-edge courses such as Electronic Engineering, to the revamp of key facilities including the popular Boilerhouse Café, Royal Holloway continues to focus on providing a superior student experience.

“With this achievement, we are proud to see our hard work making a real difference to our students,” Professor Paul Layzell, Principal of Royal Holloway said.

He continued, “Our focus is always on how we can excel, whether in our teaching, on our campus or within our community. This year is no exception. In autumn we will open our state-of-the-art Emily Wilding Davison Building. This inspiring and iconic space will house the latest technologies to support study, employability and student services. It is further evidence of our dedication and ambition to provide the best opportunities for our community.”
