Out of 127 UK institutions, Henley's undergraduate subjects rank yet again in the top 10, top 20 and even at number 1 across key criteria including graduate prospects, research quality and student experience.

Both Henley Business School and the University of Reading enjoyed good and improving results in the 2016 Good University Guide published by the Sunday Times and The Times, with Henley highlights by subject as follows:

Real Estate and Planning

Land and Property Management

For the third year running we are number 1 in the UK for graduate career prospects. We hold the number 2 overall position, following close to Cambridge.

Town & country planning and landscape

A strong and consistent number 7 position for research quality contributes to an overall top 10 position.

Accounting and Finance

Improvements in both graduate prospects and overall position see this subject area enter the top 10 in the UK.

Business Studies

Year on year improvements in overall position have been seen since 2013 and this year’s ranking features a jump into the top 20 for research quality.

Highly satisfied students

Henley is proud to be part of the University of Reading, which for the second year running improved its overall position. Notably high positions were achieved for the Student experience and Student:staff ratio.

Dr Carol Padgett, Head of Undergraduate Programmes commented:

"Over the last 70 years we have been dedicated to providing first rate business education. Our reputation was made in the provision of post-experience learning, and now we can see that our growing undergraduate cohort is reaping the benefits of our experience and enjoying great career prospects. Our students’ hard work together with support from world class faculty and market-aware careers and other support staff has made this possible."

Prospective students… 

…are invited to visit our campus (voted the best university green space in the UK) during our next Open Days on Saturday 3 and Saturday 17 October 2015. Academic staff and students will be on hand to answer questions and a series of talks will help you decide which course might suit you best you.
