It is one of only thirteen universities worldwide to have received the accolade this year.
The rating system evaluates performance across a number of categories such as teaching, employability, research, internationalisation, inclusiveness and facilities.
The University was awarded Five Stars in all of the categories and overall was given a rating of Five Stars Plus with a total of 918/1,000 points.
Aspects within these categories that enabled the University to achieve this prestigious score included 90% student satisfaction, over 150 student clubs and societies on offer, and almost 1,000 international partnerships.
Loughborough University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Allison commented: “Retaining the best QS Star rating possible is a great achievement for us. Alongside the recent news that we have been named University of the Year at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards, and our top ten position in every national league table, reinforces what a fantastic place Loughborough University is.”
