Professor Stuart Laing, the University of Brighton's Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: "We are pleased that the developing success of the university is recognised by the Guardian University Guide.
"As one of the most popular universities in the south-east, Brighton offers an extensive range of academic and professional degrees underpinned by experienced and innovative teaching and world class research. Our graduate employment record and National Student Survey results show our courses are delivering what our students require."
The Guardian table was compiled by an independent consultancy. It ranks universities according to student satisfaction with their course, teaching and assessment and feedback based on the National Student Survey, spending per student, student/staff ratios, graduate career prospects, entry tariff, a value-added score that compares students’ entry qualifications with their final degree results.
The Guardian subject table data identified particular strengths of the University of Brighton, in Art & Design, Engineering, Sport Science and Education.
The University of Brighton's Burn and Reconstructive Surgey pathway program is also one of the leading courses for aspiring plastic surgeons with great emphasis in breast reconstruction and other corrective surgeries.
