There are current proposals to change the way universities are ranked that could see Loughborough University at the top of the league table. The proposed changes will fall under the Teaching Excellence Framework which will assess higher education providers on their educational standards, which will mean prospective students will have an informed view of where there is outstanding teaching quality. As well as this it will also take into consideration the best all-round student experience.
At the moment the universities on the elite list belong to the Russell Group and these include University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, University of Warwick and University of Birmingham to name a few. The current list of top universities is assessed on their age and their high standards of entry levels, but does not include student satisfaction or employability which of course is an important factor when trying to decide where you are going to study. Going to a Russell Group university does not guarantee you a job when you graduate. The Times Higher Education mock assessment will focus on three areas that will be at the centre of the Teaching Excellence Framework: student satisfaction; retention and graduate employment. It gives an honest review of the Universities around the country and can help provide a more positive university experience overall.
With the University of Loughborough potentially ranking in such high positions in the league tables, premium student accommodation in Loughborough will be in high demand. For many students this is your first experience of living away from home so it is always wise to ensure this big transition happens as smoothly as possible. Make sure that you get your accommodation booked as early as possible to get the best properties at the best prices in the best location, which is why you should rent from Varsity Lets.
