A collaboration in multiple levels, that according with the Guardian rankings places Mediterranean College among the top Greek education institutions, while at a college level puts MC in the first place in Attica and in the second place throughout Greece.
Apart from the general presentation of the rankings, the Guardian University Guide evaluates Universities per programme, in which evaluation the University of Derby impresses with the high scoring.

The criteria entail employability opportunities, tuition fees, the relationship between students and the academic staff, grades as well as student experience. A significant number of these indicators are coming directly from student researches and the annual National Student Survey (NSS) of the British seniors.
