Guardian ranks Loughborough in UK top 15

The Guardian university league table 2015 has confirmed Loughborough University as the region’s leading higher education institution.

The table, released today, ranks Loughborough University 15th overall in the UK and number one in the East Midlands.

The University’s Textiles degree course has topped the national table in the Fashion & textiles category; and a further 10 subject areas have also achieved a top 10 rank, including top five scores in Social policy and administration (2nd), Building and town and country planning (3rd), Engineering: materials and minerals (4th) and Design and crafts (5th).

The Guardian's league tables feed into the paper’s highly regarded University Guide and rank universities according to: spending per student; student/staff ratio; graduate career prospects; what grades applicants need to get a place; a value-added score that compares students' entry qualifications with their final degree results; and how satisfied final-year students are with their courses (based on results from the annual National Student Survey).
