22 May 2017

The Guardian’s 2018 league tables published last week saw both BSc Childhood Studies (classified as Social Work in the rankings) and BSc Social Policy top their individual subject tables.

This is the first time that Childhood Studies has come first in the prestigious rankings, whilst Social Policy remains in the top three for the 11th year.

Head of School, David Abbot said, “This is fantastic news and a testament to the commitment of everyone associated with the teaching, delivery, leadership and support of both courses.”

Dr Jo Staines, Programme Director for BSc Childhood Studies said, “It’s great to see the hard work of staff and students on the Childhood Studies/Social Work and Social Policy courses being given the recognition we think they deserve.”

The Guardian University Guide 2018, focuses on the quality of teaching, student satisfaction and employability - issues which are vital to young people choosing where to study.

Overall, the University climbed 11 places to 27th in the league tables, and when students' satisfaction with teaching is looked at in isolation, Bristol is ranked 11th.

It follows a rise of seven places by the University to 17th in the Complete University Guide, published last month.
