The University of Glasgow has been ranked in the top 20 UK universities in the Independent newspaper's Good University Guide, climbing 14 places to 16th position.

Attributed to higher levels of student satisfaction and more investment in student and staff facilities, the University of Glasgow is now one of only two Scottish universities to appear in the top 20.

University of Glasgow Principal, Sir Muir Russell, said: “The Independent's Good University Guide reflects the University of Glasgow’s place in Scottish higher education.

“The quality of our teaching and research, allied to our provision of one of the best student experiences in the UK, makes us an attractive destination for students from across the UK and the world.

“Over the past several years, the University of Glasgow has gone through a period of substantial change which has allowed us to compete nationally and internationally with the best universities in the world.

"We will continue to invest in our areas of world-class excellence and we will build on our contribution to the economic, social and cultural wealth of Scotland."
