Nottingham Trent University (NTU) narrowly missed making the top 50 UK Universities by one place this year, coming in at 51st on the Guardian University League Tables.
The university has climbed six places from 57th position last year, making it in the top 55 best Universities out of a listed 119.
Rivals the University of Nottingham (UoN) came 28th – after dropping six places in the league tables.
The University Guide 2016, compiled by newspaper The Guardian gave NTU an overall score of 61.9, with 86.9% of us satisfied with our course, and 86.1% were pleased with teaching standards.
However university spending per student was very low on just 4.6% which trails behind UoN’s 6.8% per student spend – meaning the university does not invest as much money as other universities into NTU students.
Courses in Design and Crafts and Fashion and Textiles made the top 10 of best courses in the UK, with NTU’s journalism course being ranked at number four of the top 10 in the country.
Employment rates six months after graduation increased to 64.2% this year compared to last year’s 62.6%.
