How do you find the best university for the subject you wish to study? You need a guide that evaluates the quality of what is available, giving facts, figures and comparative assessments of universities.

Since 1992, The Times has produced the most widely respected and used university league tables. The Guide takes the key measures of quality as its focus, so you can make informed choices of university and subjects. Still unique and still controversial, the rankings provide hard data, analysed, interpreted and presented by a team of experts.

The 2009 edition of the best-selling Good University Guide has been further extended, now offering:

Unique league table ranking to Britain’s universities, which enables readers to assess strengths and weaknesses of each university.

Over 60 tables giving the best universities for particular subjects.

Advice on how to select a course and a university.

Details of government changes to higher education.

Guidance on how to apply and pay your way through university.

Advice on finding and paying for accommodation while you are there.

Two pages of information on each university.

Detailed coverage of Oxford and Cambridge colleges.

Information specifically designed for international students.

Review:

If you're a 17-year-old, or his or her parents, desperately trying to find objective information, try The Times Good University Guide based on The Times's league tables published annually since 1992. This is especially useful now that there are no official government league tables to enable you to compare higher education institutions.

The Guide ranks the top 100 universities from Oxford to Thames Valley in terms of teaching assessment, graduate destinations, efficiency and other criteria in a user-friendly table. Then you can look up the subject you want to study and read a double page spread about each university--including statistics, contact details and miscellaneous information. There's useful guidance about application procedures and accommodation too. Armed with the knowledge that Glasgow Caledonian "has spent £350 million transforming previously mediocre facilities into a single campus that does justice to a modern university of 14,000 students", or that Nottingham, second only to Cambridge in the number of subjects rated for teaching at the highest level, has 14,315 undergraduate students and 8.9 applicants per place, you really are in a good position to decide where to apply.

It is difficult to see how anyone could make a realistic university application without studying John O'Leary's handy annual guide, although it's a pity it wasn't proof-read more thoroughly. --Susan Elkin
