University of Worcester: Climbing but not High Enough

Winning award after award, The University of Worcester’s progress is incremental as well as incredible. Executives, however, still believe the university’s 90th place at a national league table is not fully reflective of its quality.

”While we are pleased that our position in this league table has risen 10 places up to 90 this year, we do not believe it fully reflects the outstanding experience students receive at Worcester,” a spokeswoman for the University said.

”There is much debate among universities about the various league tables and their methodologies; the criteria used by the compilers does not allow for an accurate reflection of the real situation,” she added.

The 10 place increase is continuing on the series of accomplishments the university has achieved recently, after being ranked in the top 20 English universities for graduate employment by the UK’s Higher Education Statistics Agency’s (HESA), with 24 out of 25 graduates in work or further study within six months of completing their course.

The university has also been shortlisted for the Times Higher Education University of the Year Award. It has also been shortlisted for a fourth year in a row as Nurse Education Provider of the Year (pre-registration) in the annual Student Nursing Times Awards.

”The most important thing for prospective students is to visit the universities they are interested in because it is very important that students thrive at the university they choose to go to,” the spokeswoman concluded.
