Liverpool Hope University is first in the Northwest for student experience and one of Britain’s top 50 universities, in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.
Regionally, the University has also achieved top two for teaching excellence and top three for graduate prospects.
Liverpool Hope is one of only four universities in the Northwest to rank in the national top 50 and the only university in Liverpool to hold a gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) - the government framework measures excellence in teaching quality, learning environment and student outcomes.
Professor Gerald Pillay, Vice-Chancellor and Rector of Liverpool Hope University, said: “Our commitment to knowing each student individually is reflected in these pleasing results. Student-focused and research-informed teaching is at the core of the University’s ethos, and it’s encouraging to see this model continuing to bring successful student outcomes.”
The accolade follows the recent release of findings from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, which revealed Liverpool Hope boasts one of the best employment rates in the UK. Latest figures showed 98.1 per cent of our graduates were in employment or further education six months after graduating. This places the University top two in the UK and first in England for graduate employment.
Liverpool Hope continues to invest in facilities, to ensure students have access to the best learning environments. Over the summer, the Creative Campus has been transformed to include a new arts centre, food court, fine art and design labs, and study spaces.
The full The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 will be published this Sunday (23rd September). It contains definitive rankings for 132 UK universities and is viewed as the most authoritative UK university league table.
