Today's Guardian has its latest UK University rankings:
Guardian University Rankings 2005
Oxford comes out top, replacing Cambridge (Ha! Sorry). Birmingham comes in at 28, which is pretty disappointing. The Theology rankings are here:
Again it is Oxford top, but Cambridge is beaten to second place by Glasgow, which is perhaps something of a surprise, but well done to them. I fly to Glasgow for an examination in a few weeks time, so I look forward to seeing the department there. Indeed it is a good showing for most of the Scottish universities, with St Andrews and Edinburgh at 5 and 6 respectively. Meanwhile, Birmingham just squeezes into the Top 10, just behind Manchester, though I'd have expected both to come higher. Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, is neigbouring Birmingham institution Newman College, in eighth place.
