Loughborough named best in the UK for student experience for the eighth time

Loughborough University has been named the best in the country for its student experience, the UK’s leading publication on higher education, the Times Higher Education (THE) announced today.

This is the eighth time it has topped the annual Student Experience Survey since its inception in 2006, and its 11th appearance in the top ten.

The survey is based on the views of around 20,000 students from across the UK on 22 core aspects of student life, from wellbeing and support to social life and teaching quality.

As well as claiming the overall top spot, Loughborough was ranked number one in four categories: Good community atmosphere; Good extra-curricular activities/ societies; Good environment on campus/around university; and High quality facilities. It is also the university that students are most likely to recommend to their friends. 

Commenting on Loughborough’s achievement, Professor Bob Allison, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “I am incredibly proud that yet again Loughborough University has been named the best in the country for its student experience.

“What we offer at Loughborough is truly unique, bringing together the highest quality teaching and support, employability skills and extensive placement opportunities, a wide range of extra-curricular activities, and world-class facilities. Everyone at the University works together to ensure the Loughborough student journey is the very best it can be, and to have this recognised again by the THE is fantastic.”
