The Homerton School of Health Studies (HSHS) - now a part of Anglia Ruskin University – has moved into The Guardian University Guide subject League Tables for the very first time.

In the tables, published to help students choose the right combination of higher education course from those available nationally, the HSHS was listed fifth for Nursing and Paramedical Studies with a score of 76.67 out of a possible 100 mark score. The School was placed just behind Edinburgh, Imperial College, Leeds and Essex Universities.

The Education Guide looks at a variety of factors including teaching quality, staff-student ratios and graduate job prospects and the rankings are compiled from official information published on universities and higher education colleges. 

Dr Sheila Withams, Dean of HSHS said:

“The fact that we are listed in this highly authoritative guide to degree level education studies makes us all feel very proud indeed.”

“What it demonstrates is that we are, not only meeting the requirements of the NHS locally, but also satisfying the many needs of the students which is excellent news.  By placing the student at the centre of the learning experience we will ultimately enhance the quality of care offered to patients and clients. We intend to continue to build on our strength in nursing and other studies to further enhance our reputation and standing as one of the foremost healthcare education and training institutions in the UK.”
