A top ten University in The Complete University Guide 2018

Loughborough University has consolidated its position as one of the top ten best universities in the country in The UK Complete University Guide 2018, remaining the top ranked university in the East Midlands.

The league table is based on ten measures: student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, entry standards, student to staff ratio, spending on academic services, spending on student facilities, good honours degrees achieved, graduate prospects and completion. It includes 129 institutions.

This is the second year Loughborough has been in the top ten of the guide, above the universities of Bath, Birmingham, Surrey and Exeter.

It is great to get independent confirmation of the fantastic environment we have created here at the campus. This top ten ranking reinforces Loughborough’s position as one of the best universities in the country, and that yet again we are the best in the region.

Professor Bob Allison, Loughborough’s Vice Chancellor
