The University of Glasgow is the best place in the United Kingdom to study for a nursing degree, according to the Complete University Guide.


ThinkstockPhotos-465060365The Guide, which was published last month, places the university in the Scottish city ahead of second placed Surrey and third placed Birmingham in its annual ranking.


Glasgow was classed as the best in the country for nurse training, with an overall score of 100.


The runner-up universities weren’t far behind, though – Surrey scored an impressive 99.5, and Birmingham 98.5.


All three of the top universities have jumped in the table – in the 2015 ranking, which was released last year, Surrey was in 13th place and Birmingham 26th.


Glasgow was second in the last ranking, and this year has taken the crown from previous winner Edinburgh – which falls to sixth place.


Glasgow has a Student Satisfaction score of 4.62, Research Quality of 3.2 (out of 5) and 94% of graduates in employment six months after finishing their training – meaning that if you study nursing here, you’re very likely to get a job afterwards.


The top ten universities for nursing in the UK are:


1. Glasgow

2. Surrey

3. Birmingham

4. Liverpool

5. East Anglia

6. Edinburgh

7. Sheffield

8. Leeds

9. King’s College London

10. Cardiff
