The University of Leeds has moved into the Guardian University Guide top ten for the first time, jumping four places and rising for the fourth consecutive year.
Professor Tom Ward, Deputy-Vice-Chancellor: Student Education, said: "I want to thank our students and staff for making Leeds a top ten university.
"This position is a fantastic tribute to them and highlights the excellence across the board that is on offer at Leeds; in the quality of our teaching, our research, our international focus, and the way in which we nurture students by creating a supportive and friendly environment. My sincere congratulations to them.
"The key is working collaboratively at a local, national and international level. We prize this very much at Leeds and our success in this and other rankings is a testament to that."
The Guardian University Guide, published today, uses a range of measures, including student satisfaction with teaching, spend per student and graduate employment.
