Loughborough University has retained its top five ranking in the 2020 Guardian University Guide, taking 4th place for the second year running.

The national league table, published today (Friday 7 June), ranks the country’s 121 universities by scoring each institution on a range of aspects of university life, including how satisfied students are with their course and what their chances are of getting a good job.

Speaking about Loughborough’s continued success in the league table, the University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Allison said: “It is incredibly rewarding to see that the hard work and dedication of the entire Loughborough family, who work tirelessly to ensure all  our students get the very best out of their university years, has been recognised yet again.

“To see Loughborough ranked in the top five, behind only Cambridge, St Andrews and Oxford, is fantastic and I would like to thank everyone who plays a part in making the University such an incredible place.”
