We are also extremely proud to have been named Modern University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. Criminology (which includes Youth Justice and Policing) at NTU has recently been ranked 12th in the Guardian University League Table, with the University overall achieving its highest veer position of 16th in 2019. All these achievements are testament to the passion, ideas and ambition of our workforce.
Our rise in the league tables, alongside several prestigious national awards, demonstrate the potential that creating and forging excellent partnerships, while harnessing the talents of all our people, can bring. Most notably we have been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research.
