The University of Exeter has come sixth in a 2016 university league table based on student opinion.
The University of Exeter was given an overall rating of 4.48 out of 5 by students, whilst first place was awarded to Harper Adams University, a specialist agricultural institution in Shropshire, with a score of 4.73.
These results are part of the ‘WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2016.’ The rankings were developed by an analysis of 25,000 different student reviews from the website Whatuni.com.
The website ranked 125 UK universities across ten categories – accommodation, city life, clubs and societies, courses and lecturers, job prospects, student union, facilities, support services as well as an overall rating.
Exeter also scored highly in the international (4th), clubs and societies (6th), facilities (6th) and accommodation (9th) categories. The sixth place overall ranking represents a massive rise in this league table; Exeter finished fortieth last year.
The results also revealed an increase in overall student satisfaction this year (across all universities) to 83 per cent, a rise from last year’s score of 81 per cent.
The latest results add to a number of recent league table successes for the University of Exeter, with the university climbing the rankings nationally and internationally, becoming a global top 100 university for the first time and consistently finishing in the top ten in UK university league tables.
