Lloyds Bank has released a survey placing Nottingham as 7th in the rankings of UK universities offering the best quality of student life.
91 universities participated in the survey, which measured the quality of university life by means of statistics as well as asking students across the country questions about their university experience.
The categories within the survey included course satisfaction, the percentage of students who successfully found employment after graduation, opinions on social life, sports facilities, accommodation and crime rates.
The University of Durham came out on top, with nine out of ten students satisfied with their course and 92% of students finding employment or continuing with further studies after graduation. The study also placed the University of Newcastle and the University of Sheffield as joint top for the best social life.
Nitesh Patel, an economist at Lloyds Bank, pointed out that “the top ten universities for the best quality of student life are a mix of the old, such as Oxford and Cambridge, and the relatively new such as Newcastle and Bath.”
As well as student life, the top ten universities also score well in employability and high salaries.
