Edge Hill University is celebrating after being ranked in the top 10 of all UK higher education providers for the quality of its courses and lecturers.
The WhatUni? Student Choice Awards, which are given to the universities that have been rated the highest for each category by students themselves, placed Edge Hill 6th in the country in this important category.
It is the second time the University has been listed in the top 10 for providing an exceptional teaching and learning experience for students, with a rating of 83%.
Comments from students about the courses and their lecturers describe Edge Hill as the ‘best Uni ever’, ‘always happy to help with any questions or problems’, ‘outstanding University’, ‘the attention from tutors is excellent’ and it ‘exceeds expectations’.
In addition, almost nine out of ten students would recommend the University to others for providing a good all round experience.
Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said: “It is fantastic news to hear that our students rank our courses and lecturers among the best in the country. We really pride ourselves in offering a quality teaching and learning experience and this award is testimony to the work we put in. Our students consistently rate the University highly for its performance and student satisfaction, I think this is because we invest heavily in their personal development. We introduce initiatives designed to help students develop their academic skills within the first few weeks of starting University, and we place the student experience at the centre of everything we do.
“Edge Hill students have brighter employment prospects and more opportunities to achieve than ever before. We want students to succeed and we will continue to work hard to ensure that everything we do supports their progress.”
The WhatUni? website is visited by more than 70,000 potential applicants every week, and contains student reviews of more than 500 providers of further and higher education.
