EALING’S university has climbed 23 places to become one of the top in the UK, according to the Guardian University Guide.

Prof Peter John, Vice-Chancellor of the University of West London, said: “The secret to our success is we listen.

"We listen to our students so we can deliver on the things that matter to them, such as great teaching, excellent student services and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

“But we also listen to the needs of employers so we can ensure our students have the skills they need to build a successful career and help our economy grow.”

The Guardian guide ranked UWL 34th out of 121 universities in the UK.
