Staffordshire University makes good progress in Good University Guide

"We are delighted with our rise in these League Tables. We have made considerable improvements over the last two years, as a result of excellent employability and positive National Student Survey results, and we are working hard to sustain these improvements."

Professor Liz Barnes, Vice-Chancellor

Staffordshire University has climbed a further six places in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 which is published in full this weekend.

The rise to 57th follows a significant rise of 29 places last year. Staffordshire University was identified among the top ten universities for teaching quality for the second year running, climbing to number 9, and also came 22 out of 131 in the social inclusion rankings.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Liz Barnes said: “We are delighted with our rise in these League Tables. We have made considerable improvements over the last two years, as a result of excellent employability and positive National Student Survey results, and we are working hard to sustain these improvements.

“We'd like to recognise the dedication of staff across the University who work hard to meet the needs of our diverse student community, who help to build knowledge, skills and confidence and provide the best possible learning and teaching experience.”

Staffordshire University achieved it's highest ever position in the Guardian League Tables earlier this year ranking 44th out of 121 and the latest announcement helps the University towards its target of being a Top 50 University in the UK’s League Tables.
