Awards and recognition

Times Higher Education University Teaching Rankings 2018 Europe logo

We're winners

In 2018, we were named as one of the top 250 universities in Europe – while at the same time winning an award for the quality of our learning facilities.

The Chartered Management Institute has also recognised the impact we're making on our students' employability, management and leadership skills.

Undergraduate students across the country have been taking part in the UK Engagement Survey. The survey shows how students engage with their learning, and we're thrilled to be ranked 10th this year.

Here are just a few examples of these and other successes.
