Loughborough follows Oxbridge in University Guide subject tables

Loughborough has topped the league tables of three subject areas in the latest Times Good University Guide 2010, published today (3 June), ranking it behind only Oxford and Cambridge in terms of the number of top placings.

Loughborough was ranked number one in Building, Librarianship and Information Science, and Sports Science – which appears as a separate subject area in The Times Good University Guide for the first time this year.

John O’Leary, editor of the Guide, comments: “Loughborough justifies its pre-eminent position in university sport with first place in the inaugural ranking.”

The University also has top ten rankings in 16 other subject areas.

In the overall table the University is placed 17th, underlining its status as one of the top 20 universities in the country.

“I am delighted that Loughborough is ranked behind only Oxbridge in terms of top placings in the subject tables,” said Professor Shirley Pearce, Loughborough’s Vice Chancellor. “These continued successful performances in national league tables are the consequence of sustained commitment to excellence across everything we do at the University.”
