In July, the Guardian put Middlesex up 17 places in its university league table. This year's improved National Student Survey results showed an 85% overall satisfaction rate and there was a 5% rise in graduate employment in the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey. These outcomes along with the rise in the proportion of 1sts and 2:1s from 55% in 2011/12 to 59% in 2012/13 and entry tariff increase from 250 in 2011/12 to 287 in 2012/13, all contribute to the latest league table success.
