This ranking celebrates the efforts of our students to develop their individual potential successfully during their studies. It is calculated by comparing students' entry grades against the classes of degree awarded. Success here is a measure of how staff work with students, whatever their prior educational achievements, to bring out the best in them and to inspire students to achieve their potential.
