The main league table is based on 10 measures. We have improved our overall ranking in five metrics and perform strongly in the key areas of degree completion, graduate prospects, research quality and entry standards in particular.

This success follows the recent announcement that GCU is ranked joint 70th in the world overall out of 1,406 universities in the Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings.
