The Times Good University Guide ranks universities according to eight key performance areas. These are student satisfaction, research quality, entry standards, graduate prospects, the proportion of Firsts and 2:1s achieved, completion rates, student-staff ratios, and services and facilities spend. Student Satisfaction scores are based on The National Student Survey 2013 (NSS).
