Guardian's British University League Tables published

The Guardian has published its league tables for teaching excellence for 2010. Here is the University league table, with Oxford coming top, Cambridge second and St Andrews third:

University League Table 2010

There are also tables for individual subject areas. Here's the one for Religious Studies and Theology:

University Guide 2010: Religious Studies and Theology

It's the same top three, Oxford, Cambridge and St Andrews, but in this subject area Durham ranks for more highly (4th) than the institution as a whole (14th). I'm naturally delighted to see my alma mater topping both charts, but sorry to see my former employer, University of Birmingham, down at a sorry 24 in both lists. Heythrop College, another former employer, is at an honourable 14 in the Religious Studies and Theology list. One obvious success story is the ranking of the Scottish Universities, with St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow in the Religious Studies and Theology Top 10, and Aberdeen bubbling under at 11. Oxford Brookes is impressive at 12, and I suspect that Sheffield, Manchester and Nottingham will be disappointed to miss out on the Top 10.
