Cambridge has been ranked first on the Guardian University Guide league table for the seventh consecutive year, placing Oxford and St Andrews in second and third place respectively.

Cambridge was assigned a perfect score of 100 in the table, with scores being tabulated according to satisfaction with course, satisfaction with teaching, satisfaction with feedback, student to staff ratio, spending per student, average entry tariff, value added score, and career after 6 months. These results are in turn based on findings from the annual National Student Survey.

 Cambridge scored 87.8 on satisfaction with course, 90.6 on satisfaction with teaching, and 71.2 on satisfaction with feedback. Oxford, which came in second at 98.1, scored 88.4, 91.6, and 69.0 on the same three factors respectively.

St Andrews was rated just over ten points above Durham, which came in fourth, followed by Bath in fifth, and Imperial College in sixth.

The Guardian reported, too, that almost all English universities are set to raise their fees from the 2017-18 school year onwards, with most planning to charge a maximum fee of £9,250. Only University College Birmingham and University of St Mark and St John have rejected this planned increase.
