In a new measure for 2017 asking how likely students they were to recommend their university to friends, Leeds was in the top ten, in ninth position.
“Being voted into the top five feels very encouraging, and I hope reflects the success of Leeds’ unique offer to students, which combines dynamic, research-based education with a strong emphasis on extra-curricular activities,” continued Professor Ward, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Student Education at the University of Leeds.
“It is a true testament to our fantastic community of staff and students, who come to Leeds from all over the world.”
Fourth place builds on the Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year 2017 award, in which the student experience at Leeds was singled out for praise. It also reflects National Student Survey results, where a record 90% of final year students at Leeds said they were either satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of their course in 2016.
