Loughborough University ranked 1st for Textiles, 2nd for Graphics and 3rd for Publishing in the UK

There is more cause for celebration here in the School of the Arts, English and Drama with our huge success in the Guardian University League Tables 2017! We have ranked exceptionally well in the following subjects:

  • 1st in the UK for Textiles: Innovation and Design (listed under Fashion and Textiles)
  • 2nd in the UK for Graphic Design (listed under Design and Craft)
  • 3rd in the UK for Publishing (listed under Journalism, Publishing and PR)

Loughborough University as a whole ranks 4th in the UK, having climbed seven places from last year, and has 16 of its courses ranked in the national top 10. The 4th place ranking marks our highest ever league table position and makes it the top ranked university in England after Cambridge and Oxford.The tables rank all 119 universities in the UK by scoring each institution for the aspects of university life that matter most to students, such as course and teaching satisfaction, staff to student ratio, spend per student, average entry tariff and employability.

This has been a truly phenomenal year for our School as we entered the world top 40 for Art & Design and ranked 2nd in the UK for both Art & Design and Publishing. The university as a whole also won the Times Higher Education Student Experience Award and came 1st or 2nd in multiple categories at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards. We are sure that this trend will continue, and look forward to what the future holds for our School!
