2009 Guardian University League Table

It’s that time of year again, when everyone is producing their league tables. So, now the Guardian one is out. And there are some pretty extraordinary results in here with, for example, Bournemouth and Nottingham Trent both appearing above Liverpool and Newcastle. The top 20 features less than half of the Russell Group. Not entirely clear what the reasons for these results are.

The top 45 are listed below:
