The Complete University Guide has released their university league tables for 2024. The tables assess each university in the UK on various factors. 

Universities are given a rating on Entry standards, Student satisfaction, Research quality and Graduate prospects. These ratings are then combined to work out an overall score which is then used to form the league table.
