Edge Hill University ranked in the top four universities in the North West

June 7, 2023

Edge Hill University is in the top four universities in the North West, according to the Complete University Guide 2024.

Every year, the Complete University Guide releases UK university and subject league tables to support prospective students in making informed decisions about their future.

The main league table is based on ten measures including: entry standards, student satisfaction, research quality, research intensity, graduate prospects, student-staff ratio, spending on academic services and student facilities. Edge Hill’s top score was for student satisfaction.

Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said: “We are very proud to have been placed in the top four in the North West and the student satisfaction score is particularly gratifying as our students are our number one priority.

“This recognition builds on the Modern University of the Year title we were awarded by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2022.

“You can see our award-winning campus for yourself, meet our students and get the answers to your questions at one of our open days.”

Edge Hill’s most recent achievements include recognition in the 2022 National Student Survey, being placed second in the North West for learning resources; the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2023, who ranked Edge Hill top three in the UK for university facilities; and the Complete University Guide 2023 which found Edge Hill to be one of the safest universities in the country (4th university town in the UK for lowest crime rates).
