Once again, Edge Hill University has secured a top 20 place out of 116 universities in a national league table of student experience voted for by students, one of only two North West universities to do so.

The University sits within the top sixth of all those surveyed in the Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey 2018. It has secured a top four position for its accommodation and is the seventh safest university in the country.

Edge Hill’s high quality facilities have also been recognised, with a top eight mark for sports and learning facilities, good library and opening hours, cheap shop and centralised amenities.

Dr John Cater, Vice-Chancellor at Edge Hill University said: “To be in the national top ten for accommodation, amenities, learning services, sports facilities, safety and cost of living and in the top two in the region for all aspects of our student experience is another strong commendation for Edge Hill University as we continue to further enhance our reputation as a leading provider of higher education.”

Edge Hill also secured a joint position with Durham University in the top 20 for its academic experience, achieving excellent marks for having high quality staff and lectures, well-structured courses, tuition in small groups and a fair workload.

Participants in the 2018 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey were asked to provide a rating between “strongly agree” and “strongly disagree” on whether their university has:

  • High-quality staff / lectures
  • Helpful / interested staff
  • Well-structured courses
  • Good personal relationship with teaching staff
  • Tuition in small groups
  • Fair workload
