Every year the Complete University Guide releases UK university and subject league tables to support prospective students in making informed decisions about their future.

The regional league tables help people find the right university for them in their area and are also informative for local employers to know what skills people are coming to the area to develop.

Professor Amanda Chetwynd, Chair of the Complete University Guide Advisory Board, said: “Many prospective students in Wales are keen to find the best university in the local area. Complete University Guide’s regional league tables are a valuable source of information to give local prospective students a greater understanding of what higher education options there are in Wales.”
