Award Winning Teaching
University of the Year for Teaching Quality
We’re The Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year for Teaching Quality 2020. The award recognises our consistently high student satisfaction scores, as measured by the independent National Student Survey (NSS).
In 2019 we achieved an overall score of 86% — our highest ever. Nearly 50 of our courses achieved an overall satisfaction score of more than 90%, and 10 courses scored 100%.
Five star rating
We have been awarded five stars in the latest QS Stars international rating system. QS Stars is a rating system that provides a detailed look at higher education institutions across the world, focusing on specific topics such as teaching strength, graduate employability, research strength, inclusiveness and innovation.
The University achieved an overall five-star rating and was given the top mark in six of the eight categories it was assessed on including teaching, employability, facilities, innovation, inclusiveness and in the specialist category of Hospitality and Leisure Management.
Our distinctive approach to teaching mixes lectures and seminars with workshops, placements and real-world projects — so you graduate with the skills and experience employers want.
