Loughborough ranked as the top university for student satisfaction both in the UK and globally in an independent survey.  

In the Autumn Wave 2014 Student Barometer for students from home, Loughborough was ranked first in the UK and globally for overall satisfaction. Out of 48 participating universities, 95% of Loughborough students said they were satisfied with the University overall.

The Student and International Student Barometer allow students to give universities feedback on the services they provide. They include aspects of students’ experience such as why they chose to study at the university, the application process and their overall satisfaction with learning, living and supporting areas.

Loughborough was also rated first in the student support, student living and student learning experience categories.

Ninety-two per cent of Loughborough students who took part in the survey said they would recommend the University to those thinking of applying.

In the Autumn 2014 International Student Barometer, Loughborough was ranked first for its sports facilities, out of the 183 universities who participated globally.

Around 280,000 home and international students from 211 institutions in 18 countries took part in the Autumn Wave 2014 surveys.
