Loughborough University ranked 2nd in the UK for Art & Design and Publishing

Another fantastic success for Loughborough University as we leap four places to our highest ever ranking of 7th place in The Complete University Guide UK 2017! This makes us the fastest riser in the top 20 as well as the top ranked university in the Midlands, and the guide describes us as "truly a top class university with satisfied students and fantastic Graduate Prospects".

The league table assesses 127 institutions 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.

Most exciting for our School, however, is the university's ranking of 2nd place in the UK for Art & Design and also for Publishing (for this guide grouped under Communication & Media Studies). Add that to our recent ranking within the Europe top 10 and world top 40 and the fact that the The Complete University Guide also marks our English course as the fastest rising within the top 20 and we might need a little lie down from all the excitement...
