Harper Adams University named Modern University of the Year

Harper Adams UniversityHarper Adams University is delighted to report that it has been recognised as Modern University of the Year in the latest prestigious rankings figures.

The recently published Times universities league table placed Harper Adams University in the top 20 at number 17, giving it the title of Modern University of the Year for a second time and name the university as the runner-up for overall UK University of the Year.

Speaking about these excellent achievements, Alastair McCall, Editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide, explains, “No modern university has ever finished in the top 30 of our rankings, but Harper Adams has rewritten the record books this year by elbowing its way into our elite top 20.” He continues, “It is pre-eminent in its field and the establishment of only the ninth school of veterinary medicine in the country, which takes its first students next year, will only raise Harper Adams' status higher still, combining its excellence in animal health disciplines with those of Keele University in the sciences.”

Harper Adams University has climbed up these prestigious rankings from 33rd last year to 17th overall in the latest guide, setting a new record high position for a post-1992 institution. 

Vice-Chancellor at Harper Adams University, Dr David Llewellyn, is delighted with these accolades, saying, “It is amazing to have broken into the top 20 universities and to have been named the Modern University of the Year in this year’s Good University Guide. To have been awarded the University of the Year runner-up title is equally special. It has been another remarkable year for us, during which our students have been great ambassadors for Harper Adams. 

Dr Llewellyn continues, “We have continued to develop the specialist subjects that we offer, to support the production of the nation’s food, animal welfare and land and environmental management – issues that really matter to the future of the UK and the many other nations with which we work. And being based on a modern campus in a fantastic rural setting, enables us, in that process, to provide a strong and supportive academic and social community, connected to the industries and professions in our specialist field, that our students truly value. We can’t wait to share our performance this year with our students, staff and the many organisations who work with us. All of them have contributed to our success and I am sure they will be delighted with this news!”
