We're winners

In 2021, we were named as one of the top 350 universities in the world for the sixth successive year – and one of the top 40 in the UK.

In November 2021, we were proud to receive The Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our world-leading music therapy work.

We were also named as one of the UK’s top five universities for Education and Sports Science courses in the Guardian League Table 2022.

This follows awards for the quality of our learning facilities, and the impact we're making on our students' employability, management and leadership skills.

Our final-year students have also rated their educational experience highly in the National Student Survey.
