Liverpool Physics ranked 5th in Guardian University League table

Physics at the University of Liverpool

Physics at the University of Liverpool has been ranked 5th out of the 43 undergraduate degree courses on offer throughout the UK in the 2019 Guardian University League tables. The achievement is a proud result for our undergraduate programmes, jointly-taught with Liverpool John Moores University, particularly as the table places a major emphasis on student experience and outcomes. According to the ranking no other physics department currently invest more in the development of its students, and our ‘value added’ score – a metric designed to assess how effectively students are taught – is amongst the very highest in the country.

The ranking follows other good news for the University of Liverpool, which has recently been awarded a Silver rating in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF). The ‘excellent’ outcomes and high rates of continuation for full-time students were particularly praised by the Office for Students.

At Liverpool we work hard to create an engaging and collaborative atmosphere for our undergraduates. We pride ourselves on the environment this fosters (98% of our students found their programme intellectually stimulating, NSS 2016), which sees the scientific discourse between staff and students continue throughout the department, from our award winning teaching facilities, through to the coffee lounge and corridors.
