New league tables show the University of Sunderland’s Education programmes are the best in England – and second best in UK.

In the publication of the Guardian’s University Guide 2020: League Tables for Education, Sunderland pulled out some of the UK’s most impressive scores.

Professor Lynne McKenna, Academic Dean of Faculty of Education and Society, said: “I congratulate the School of Education staff for such a fantastic result.

“This is the icing on the cake after almost four years of continuous improvement I am very proud of the professional way in which this has been achieved.”

The University scored an overall 93.2 out of 100, placing it second only to the University of the West of Scotland.

The Guide also revealed that 88.8% of students were satisfied with the course, with 91.3% satisfied with teaching.
