Bradford leaps into UK top 50 of Times Higher student survey with highest ranking rise

Published: Fri 10 Apr 2015

The University of Bradford has achieved the highest rise in overall ranking of all UK universities in the 2015 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey results, leaping into the top 50.

The University rose from 80th place in 2014 to 45th in this year’s survey, which ranks universities by the excellence of their provision for students, as rated by the students themselves.

Nearly 14,700 students across the country contributed to the survey, which measures 21 attributes of universities, chosen by students as key indicators of the quality of their experience.

These include high-quality facilities, high quality staff/lecturers, good industry connections, good sports facilities, good community atmosphere and cheap shop/bar/amenities.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Cantor said: “We pride ourselves on our students' experience and work hard each year to make sure that we provide an excellent environment and outstanding support, both academically and socially. What is especially pleasing is that our students are recognising the work we are doing to support them, which is reflected in the University’s significant rise in the rankings."

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Shirley Congdon, added: "I am delighted that our students value the continued improvements to their experience at the University of Bradford.

"Through strong and sustained partnership working with students we have responded to the needs of our diverse student body providing personalised approaches to learning, employability, student support and life on campus.”
