The University of York has been placed in the top ten universities in England and Wales with the lowest crime rates in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The results are based on the Complete University Guide Crime Survey, and they only include those universities that are listed in the Times Higher Education World Rankings.

The survey takes into account crimes of burglary, robbery, violence and sexual offences in the cities or towns as a whole, not just crimes against students.

Durham University took pole position on the table and the University of York came in 8th. Other universities in the top ten included Bangor University, the University of Oxford and the University of Bath.

In the Complete University Guide Crime Survey the University of York came in 21st and York St John came in 17th place. At the top of the survey was the University of Buckinghamshire, followed by Falmouth University and then Durham University.
