Every year, the Times Higher Education (THE) UK Student Experience Survey sets out to find the top 100 universities in the United Kingdom, based on student experience. This year Loughborough University emerged as the best for student experience. Established in 2005, the research aims to give prospective students another way to assess the best places to study. To put together the rankings, researchers used 21 criteria to measure each university.
Criteria include the structure of the courses, the quality of staff and lectures– along with how helpful and interesting they are, how good the social life is, community atmosphere, good environment and quality of facilities. The data used for the study is based on the responses of around 15,000 undergraduate students.
The Times state that the latest figures reveal students now have higher expectations and are demanding more from their universities. Below are the Top 10 universities ranked highest in the survey;
