Oxford University tops The Times Good University Guide 2023 Rankings

The University of Oxford has secured the top spot in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 rankings for the first time in 12 years although it has always been in the top three spots.

The annual Times university league table, which identifies the best universities in the UK, consists of nine indicators, including student satisfaction, teaching quality and the wider student experience, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend, and degree completion rates.

Oxford scored very highly on all the academic measures and had the lowest student/staff ratios of any university. It also scored very highly on research quality and graduate prospects.

For almost 1,000 years, Oxford University has been recognized and celebrated across the world as a jewel in the crown of world learning. Just as our past inspires us, it also demands that we achieve greater heights in the centuries to come. Inspired philanthropy has always played an important role in this University by providing resources for great scholarship, architectural jewels such the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera, or the great engineering, medical and scientific laboratories of the 20th century. By giving to Americans for Oxford, you are continuing this tradition of excellence. Thank you.
