Loughborough Top of the Class Again!

For the fifth year running Loughborough University has topped the prestigious Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, with a remarkable overall score of 84.90, a full mark ahead of second placed Sheffield with 83.76!

The survey, which is gathered annually, asked more than 13,000 undergraduates across the country to grade their university on 21 different factors, from the quality of teaching to the social life on campus.

Loughborough scored highly across all the grades, most notably those of sports facilities, campus environment, extracurricular activities, social life, students’ union and, of course, its  library!

But bad news for Cambridge and Oxford Universities, who fall from second to fourth, and third to sixth respectively.

We’d very much like to maintain our position at the peak, but we’re conscious of the need to not rest on our laurels (like perhaps Oxford and Cambridge have!) Therefore we’d very much like to encourage you to keep on giving us feedback – positive and negative – so we know what we’re doing right, and – most importantly! – what we’re doing wrong. So why not drop us a line via our Ask a Librarian email service, or fill in one of our customer satisfaction slips in the library? We’d love to hear what you think, good or bad, and help us to help keep Loughborough top!
