The University of Chester has ranked joint 15th overall out of 122 higher education institutions in the annual Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. Our top 10 performances in academic experience and student welfare have resulted in the University of Chester out-ranking the University of Cambridge in the highly-regarded national league table. Chester has risen 14 places since its last assessment.
 
Chester is ninth in the country for Academic Experience across a range of criteria, including: high quality staff/lectures; helpful/interested staff; well-structured courses; effective relationship with teaching staff; tuition in small groups and workload. In 10th place for Student Welfare, the University has been acknowledged in terms of how personal requirements are catered for and its award-winning support/welfare. High levels of safety and security mean Chester is 18th in the country in that category. The University’s facilities are judged to be in 30th place in the country and accommodation in 40th position.
 
Dr Chris Haslam, the University’s Senior Pro Vice-Chancellor (Corporate Development and the Student Experience) said: “The opinions of our students are of the utmost importance and we not only hear what they have to say, but we also listen and respond. It is extremely gratifying to see how highly our students rate the University as a whole and that their honest appraisal sees us among the very best of universities nationally.”
