According to the latest Times Higher Education UK student experience survey, Loughborough University tops all other institutions, offering the best student life in the country.

The university topped a new ranking based on student experiences, beating more than 100 other universities.

The 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) UK student experience survey questioned more than 20,000 students on 22 aspects of university life, including teaching quality, facilities, accommodation and social life.

Loughborough beat all other universities to top the list, up from second place last year.

Second place was awarded to Harper Adams University, followed by Leeds University in third place.

Commenting on the ranking, Professor Robert Allison, vice-chancellor of Loughborough University said: "I am incredibly proud that yet again Loughborough University has been named the best in the country for its student experience."

"What we offer at Loughborough is truly unique, bringing together the highest quality teaching and support, employability skills and extensive placement opportunities, a wide range of extra-curricular activities, and world-class facilities. Everyone at the university works together to ensure the Loughborough student journey is the very best it can be, and to have this recognised again by the THE is fantastic."
