Students have voted the University of Leeds as offering one of the best student experiences in the UK

The 2016 Times Higher Education student experience survey puts Leeds in sixth position, up from ninth last year, after students rated it highly across all areas of student life.

The University’s campus environment, student union, social life and extra-curricular activities and societies were voted as being particularly strong. Libraries, sports and teaching facilities are also highly regarded.

This is the sixth year running that students have ranked Leeds among the top ten universities in the UK.

Professor Vivien Jones, University of Leeds Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Education, said: “What shines through yet again is the contribution and active role that students and the Union play in making this university a dynamic, ambitious and popular place to study. “Because of our size and diversity, we offer not just a fantastic choice of degree programmes but also a huge range of inspiring experiences and activities.

Sixth place builds on the 2015 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.
