Edge Hill University has continued its rise up the rankings in this year’s Good University Guide.

The University has cemented its place in the top half of the table of 132 institutions in The Times and The Sunday Times University Guide 2019.

Ranked in the top five universities in the region, Edge Hill has significantly increased the number of graduates in professional jobs or graduate study.

There are also improvements across all measures of teaching excellence, degree completion rates and student experience.

John Cater, Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University, said:

Dr John Cater“From being awarded a Gold ranking in the Teaching Excellence Framework to again receiving outstanding results in this year’s National Student Survey, our focus on student experience and providing exceptional teaching is continuing to drive our rise in annual rankings.

“Equipping students with the skills that they’ll need in the world of employment is embedded across all our programmes, meaning our graduates are excellently prepared when it comes to securing jobs and launching successful careers.”

The Good University Guide states:

“Edge Hill may have been to some a surprising name on the list of five new medical schools announced this year but it has been confounding sceptics since it became a university in 2005 and is among the top dozen post-1992 universities in our table.

“Almost £300m has been invested in the Ormskirk campus over the past 10 years. The 27m Catalyst building opened this summer, bringing together library, careers and student services. The university’s flagship Creative Edge building houses industry-standard equipment and resources for those studying media, film, animation, advertising and computing.”

The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 is published over three days beginning with a supplement in the newspaper on September 23. It provides full profiles of universities and league tables of nine indicators including research quality and facilities spend.
