Education bosses at the University of Essex will “continue to strive” to improve standards after it remained in the same position in the latest league rankings.

The Colchester-based university sits at 39th in a league table by TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk, which rates 123 institutions.

Ipswich’s University Campus Suffolk failed to be eligible for the list as it currently does not award its own degrees, relying on the University of Essex and the University of East Anglia (UEA) to fulfil the role.

The top performing subjects in their own individual tables at the Essex university were American studies (11th), history of art, architecture and design (also 11th) and sports science (15th).

A spokeswoman for the university said: “Essex was founded 50 years ago as a university for a modern age, and we continue, through our research and teaching, to explore new ways of thinking and to transform lives.

“The university has an international reputation in the social sciences, with peaks of excellence in the humanities and science, which are reflected in these rankings.

“We are continually striving to strengthen the value of an Essex education to our students, through research-led teaching and developing the skills and experience needed for fulfilling employment or further study.”

Norwich’s UEA climbed five places to 15th with Cambridge once again heading the list, beating Oxford University.

Nova Jayne Robinson, director of TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk, said: “Once again, the guide is first to give university applicants reliable and comprehensive information on which to base one of the most important choices of their lives.”

Ten universities fell 10 places or more, including Anglia Ruskin and the University of Bedfordshire.
