Edge Hill has been ranked by students as the top University in the region.
The University has also been placed in the top quartile of institutions across the UK in the annual rankings published in The Telegraph. The results are determined by reviews published online at Whatuni.com by 20,000 students from across the country.
Edge Hill is placed ahead of Oxford and Cambridge Universities as well as Imperial College London and the University of Bristol in the ranking determined by students themselves.
The results are based on results in categories including accommodation, city life, courses and lecturers, job prospects and support services.
Steve Igoe, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University said: “We’re delighted to be ranked as best in the region by students, as well as featuring so highly overall in this national league table.
“We work hard to put our students at the heart of everything we do and this result is testament to the commitment and hard work of our staff and students and everyone involved with Edge Hill.”
Simon Emmett, Managing Director of Whatuni.com which collated the results, said: “The reviews are a fundamental part of Whatuni.com. They represent the most current, accurate and accessible resource for today’s sixth form and college students, helping them find the right uni. We’re really proud to be part of that journey.”
Edge Hill University is currently Times Higher Education’s University of the Year and has also been shortlisted for New University of the Year in the Educate North Awards.
