We are the largest single-site university in the UK, with the biggest student community. In total, 25 Nobel Prize winners have worked or studied here.
83% of our research was ranked as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ by the Research Excellence Framework in 2014.
And more than nine out of ten of our recent graduates go straight into employment or continued studies.

We are ranked 34th in the world, eighth in Europe and sixth in the UK in the 2018 Academic Ranking of World Universities. We are also ranked seventh in Europe in the 2018 Reuters Top 100 Most Innovative Universities.
What’s more, we’re well underway with one of the biggest investments in facilities undertaken by any UK university. This ten-year plan will transform our campus and create world-class facilities for staff, students and visitors in support of our global ambitions.
