Staffordshire University is highest climber in Complete University Guide rankings
Staffordshire University is the highest UK climber in the recently published Complete University Guide 2019.
These prestigious rankings now place it in joint 73 position – thanks, in part, to its graduate prospects, with last year’s Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey (DLHE) showing 97.5% of Staffordshire University graduates were employed or in further study.
Vice Chancellor Professor Liz Barnes enthuses, “This is great news for the University. We deliver a range of activities to support employability and enterprise including the option of a guaranteed work experience, volunteering and real-world projects. This is part of our overall mission to deliver great teaching, facilities and overall student experience and while there is still more to do, we’re delighted to see it having a positive impact on the League Tables."
Staffordshire University was also the highest climber in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, and is also proud to be ‘THE Most Improved Student Experience’ in the Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey published earlier this year.
Professor Barnes adds, “We’re aware that League Tables are helpful to prospective students, their parents and career advisors and that if we can evidence that students have a great experience and are highly likely to go on to a successful career, then students are far more likely to make us their first choice.”
Students' Union President Darren Clarke said: "It's fantastic to see the hard work and positive change happening at Staffordshire University recognised in this climb. As a Union we're proud of the impact our Student Groups, Representatives and members have on the student experience, and are delighted to see these groups working with the University to benefit our students."
