Edge Hill University continues its rise up the Good University Guide rankings

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

The University has further improved its position in the top half of the table of 134 institutions in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020, rising to the institution’s highest ever ranking.

Ranked alongside University of Lancaster, University of Manchester and University of Liverpool in the top four universities in the North West, Edge Hill has now also made the top 10 leading post-1992 universities.

John Cater, Vice-Chancellor of Edge Hill University, said: “To have achieved our highest ever ranking is welcome recognition of our focus on student experience and providing exceptional teaching.
 
“Equipping our students with the skills they’ll need in the world of work is embedded in all our courses, ensuring our graduates are fully prepared to embark on successful careers.”

The University has also risen through the ranks in the areas of research quality, Ucas entry points and student-staff ratio, and now sits at 41 in the social inclusion rankings, particularly excelling in the number of students from state school backgrounds and first-generation students, for which it is among the top 20.

The Good University Guide panel noted that “students from diverse backgrounds achieve consistently outstanding outcomes”.

The Guide provides the definitive rankings for UK universities and the most comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain.

It includes profiles on 134 universities, making use of the latest data published in the past two months.
