Norwich University of Arts has jumped 28 places in the latest university rankings table.

The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide ranked the institution 60th, up substantially on the 88th place it received the previous year.

The latest ranking makes it the third most improved university nationally, while it was also ranked tenth nationally for teaching quality.

Commenting on the results, vice-chancellor professor John Last, said: "We're delighted that once again the quality of teaching at NUA has been identified as being among the very best in the country.

"This is well-deserved recognition of the hard work and commitment of staff across our range of courses - and also the university's determination to provide students with the knowledge and expertise they need to thrive in the workplace in future."

A record number of students are starting degrees at the university this year, after the institution reported an increase of over a third in three years.

The latest ranking for NUA comes after it received a gold rating in the government's newly launched Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) earlier this year.
