The University of East Anglia has gone up five places in a new league table of universities.

It is 15th in the latest annual Complete University Guide, compared to 20th the previous year and 27th the year before that.

In total, 123 universities were included in this year’s guide, with Cambridge claiming the top spot once again and Oxford in second place.

In third place, the same as last year, was the London School of Economics and Political Science, followed by St Andrews, which moved up two places to fourth, and Durham, which holds on to fifth place.

The table uses available data to rank universities on nine areas - student satisfaction, research, entry standards, student to staff ratios, spending in academic services, spending facilities, the numbers of good honours degrees achieved, graduate prospects and completion rates.

The authors of the table said that at many universities, student to staff ratios had improved this year due to institutions taking on more staff and falling student numbers, while more money is also being spent on student facilities and there has been a rise in entry standards.

David Jobbins, a spokesman for the Guide, said there had been a 6.4% year-on-year fall in undergraduate numbers in 2012/13 according to their analysis.

The Complete University Guide is due to be published today at
