KEELE University has been named as one of the best places to study in the UK.
The annual Times Higher Education (THE) survey has rated the university as 13th for its overall ‘student experience’ – up from 31st place last year.
Keele has scored particularly well in the teaching category, coming sixth out of 111 UK universities for the quality of its staff and lectures. Other high marks were awarded for its courses, social life and good environment on campus.
It contrasts sharply with neighbouring Staffordshire University, which has been rated as 97th for its overall student experience.
And Manchester Metropolitan University, which has a campus in Crewe, came 83rd on the list.
Nick Foskett, vice-chancellor at Keele, said he was ‘delighted’ to see the high-quality work of the university’s staff recognised in the THE survey.
He added: “Providing a rich, varied student experience is at the heart of Keele’s ethos.”
