Staffordshire University celebrates Guardian League Tables performance

"We've had a hugely successful year in terms of League Table performance which recognises student experience, teaching excellence and graduate employability – all of which remain top priorities for our University."

Professor Martin Jones, Deputy Vice-Chancellor

Staffordshire University is celebrating its best ever performance in the Guardian League Tables published today.

The University's climb up 23 places from 67 to 44 marks a breakthrough to the top half of the League Tables.

It follows exceptional performances in the Complete University Guide, published last month, and The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, published last September where Staffordshire University was the highest climber.

Staffordshire University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Martin Jones said: “We've had a hugely successful year in terms of League Table performance which recognises student experience, teaching excellence and graduate employability – all of which remain top priorities for our University.”

“Our performance in the Guardian League Tables, combined with our other successes, mean we can afford to be proud of our achievements and our University. However, we are aware there is work to do to maintain and build on our position.”
 
Earlier this year the University also celebrated 'THE Most Improved Student Experience' in the Times Higher Education (THE).

Professor Jones added: “We’'e aware that League Tables are helpful indicator of a University's performance to a wide range of stakeholders including students, their parents and teachers and employers. This all helps to build reputation as a University which is connected to the needs of our students, business and society.”

“Students are also more likely to make us their first choice if we can evidence that students have a great experience and are highly likely to go on to a successful career.”
