The Times Good University Guide 2019

Top 30 for all undergraduate subjects


This year’s Sunday Times and Times Good University Guide evidences the quality and relevance of our undergraduate programmes, with all subjects placed in the top 30 overall and Real Estate and Planning securing a no.3 position*.

The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide is a comprehensive league table for students looking to compare potential institutions and courses that they are considering for their higher education study. The Guide assesses graduate prospects, student satisfaction, research and teaching quality and entry standards, using data from the National Student Survey (NSS) and Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

At Henley, we understand that future career prospects are important factors when choosing an undergraduate course. We have a strong focus on employability and provide extensive professional and personal development opportunities to help equip students with a range of skills to prepare them for the world of work. Alongside work placements and study abroad opportunities, our award-winning careers team provide support ranging from CV reviews and interview preparation sessions to comedy training for confidence and cartooning for memory recall. Dedication to our students’ development is reflected in our high ranking positions for graduate prospects:

  • Real Estate and Planning: No.1*
  • Accounting and Finance: No.19
  • Business and Management**: No.23

Students are taught by academic and practitioners with solid commercial experience and knowledge, backed up by relevant and quality research to enhance their learning experience, as demonstrated by further top results for research quality:

  • Real Estate and Planning: No. 2* and No.6†
  • Accounting and Finance: No.15
  • Business and Management**: No. 18

Commenting on the results, Professor Susan Rose, Director of Teaching & Learning, adds:

“The fourth industrial revolution and fast-changing industry landscapes mean that we must equip our students with a range of skills and behaviours which will make them highly resilient as they navigate their future career paths. The strong position of our programmes in the Good University Guide is testimony to the hard work that goes into developing and supporting students at Henley in order to ensure they are ready for the work experiences that await them.”
