QMUL tops UK league table for Dentistry

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is the UK’s highest ranking university for Dentistry, as published today in The Complete University Guide league table for 2018.

It is also the only university in the country to achieve the maximum overall score of 100 in the subject, with the Guide commenting that “the university has excellent scores for all of the measures used.”

QMUL also rises three places in the rankings to be 4th in the UK for Medicine, achieving an overall score of 97.6 out of 100, and the maximum score of 100 for the employability of graduates on completion of their course.

The results are based on student satisfaction scores from the National Student Survey and other measures from the Research Excellence Framework and Higher Education Statistics Agency.

The Guide says: “With Queen Mary University of London’s roots being solely in the provision of medical education - starting life as the London Hospital Medical College - one would expect it to perform well in the Medicine league table.

“That it certainly does. Aside from its obvious reputation, some may be enthused by the fact that Queen Mary is located in trendy East London - no doubt a factor in Queen Mary's impressive Student Satisfaction score.”

The Complete University Guide is compiled from Higher Education Statistics Agency data on university entry standards, student-staff ratios, spending on academic services, spending on facilities, good honours degrees, graduate prospects, completion and overseas student enrolments.
