Guardian ranks Edinburgh 9th for Law

The University of Edinburgh has been ranked 9th in the UK for law in the 2016 Guardian University Guide, published this week.

Cambridge and Oxford take first and second place respectively in a top 10 that is dominated by London universities.

Edinburgh scored well in the ranking for teaching satisfaction, achieving 93.2 out of 100 – the fourth best score in the top 10 after Cambridge, Oxford and the University of East Anglia. 

Edinburgh also achieved the third best score in the top 10 for “Career after six months” earning 89 out of 100, placing it above Oxford and the London School of Economics in this category.

The Guardian University Guide is the only league table that does not take into account research output, focusing instead on measuring data on many aspects of the student experience such as teaching quality or career preparation.

The University of Edinburgh was ranked 20th in the overall ranking.
