Following Cardiff University’s recent success in the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities where the University placed in the top 100, Cardiff is continuing its climb upwards and has been ranked 35th – a rise of 11 places – in The Times & The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. Cardiff has also been officially named Welsh University of the Year.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan said: “It’s extremely pleasing to have achieved a rise of 11 places in this year’s Good University Guide.
“As a University we want to be a credit to Wales and key to the economic and social success of the nation which is why it is pleasing we’ve been named Welsh University of the Year.”
Cardiff University’s ambition to be ranked in the top 20 in the Good University Guide and named consistently among the top 100 universities in the world is reflective of these recent achievements. Professor Riordan added: “This year’s result and others show we are heading in the right direction. The key thing for us as a University is to remain focused, maintain our momentum and, ultimately, realise our ambition.”
