The University of Suffolk has been ranked as one of the top 15 universities in the country for academic experience in the Times Higher Education student survey.

Students were asked to rate the quality of staff and lectures, course structure, helpfulness of staff and relationship with staff in the annual survey.

The University of Suffolk came out 14th in the ratings – a huge leap from its 95th rank last year, when it was still known as University Campus Suffolk.

Professor Mohammad Dastbaz, deputy vice chancellor at the university said: “One of the first things a prospective student will consider is the academic experience of a university so we are delighted to have been recognised in this area. We have leading academics across a range of disciplines, many of whom continue to publish research in their field and we are known as a university to tackle hard hitting social issues which others may shy away.”
