Hull University has climbed in the Complete University Guide League table for 2020, rising by thirteen places.

The university has jumped to 81st place nationally in a year that saw most universities in the Yorkshire and Humber region drop places.

The jump makes Hull University the seventh best in the region, ahead of Leeds Arts University, which dropped thirteen places nationally.

The Complete University Guide league table ranks UK universities both nationally and in 70 subjects, helping students to decide which placement best suits them.

The University of Leeds remains the top university in Yorkshire and Humber for a fourth year in a row, but still dropped one place to 14th in the UK.

Dr Bernard Kingston, chairman of The Complete University Guide, commented: "The evidence is clear; the increased emphasis, including funding, on employability and career planning within academic departments and student services is bearing fruit."

"Many institutions now have this as a core element of their strategic plans with the introduction of innovative programmes of subject-specific careers events focussed on embedding and signposting graduate destinations."

"This is being supported through increased links to alumni and outside professionals leading to higher-skilled work experience."

"Such developments have been strongly encouraged by prestigious annual awards from AGCAS (the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services) and the Institute of Student Employers."
