Best Student Experience

Loughborough is the only university to have been voted England's Best Student Experience for six consecutive years in the Times Higher Education league table.

The annual poll is published in the Times Higher Education (THE) magazine and uncovers the views of students on the factors that matter the most to them.

Students are asked to rate their institution, based on a seven-point scale, against 21 criteria, ranging from student facilities and the campus environment, to the quality of teaching and the helpfulness of staff.

Loughborough, currently ranked 5th in the poll, is consistently well placed in all of the categories, and is well known for offering a first-rate student experience.

It highlights the excellent community atmosphere, extra-curricular activities and societies, and the good environment on campus and around the University, as well as the first rate sports facilities.

Reassuringly for our current and our future students, Loughborough also scored highly for our well established connections with industry.

Being consistently acknowledged as a university offering a great student experience is an endorsement of Loughborough’s commitment to providing a first-class all-round experience for our students.
