Nottingham Trent University has achieved an outstanding top twenty ranking for its Teaching Quality in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.

The Guide measures students' satisfaction with teaching quality and their wider student experience as well as looking at research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications, degree results achieved, student-staff ratios, service and facilities spend and completion rates.

The University is ranked at 18th in the Teaching Quality category. It is also ranked as the fifth top modern University in the UK. In the overall Student Experience category, the University is placed at joint 31st.

Nottingham Trent University's Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, said: "It is a wonderful achievement for Nottingham Trent University to be recognised as one of the top twenty universities in the UK for its Teaching Quality. This result shows the expertise and commitment of our staff who are making this our number one priority. We pride ourselves on being a teaching intensive University.

"To be on the cusp of a top 30 ranking for student experience also reflects the efforts our staff have made to provide students with an excellent experience."

Nottingham Trent University is currently rated fourth in the UK for the number of students on year-long work placements.

Professor Peck said: "We have launched our new strategic plan this year which seeks to create the University of the future and one of its aims is to create even more work opportunity for our students.

"Our pledge is for every course to contain strong links to employers and we are already a long way down this road with associations to businesses who offer work placements; many courses offer professional accreditation of periods of work experience."

Nottingham Trent University's results in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide build on the national recognition the University has already received this year for the quality of its teaching. Earlier this month, Nottingham Law School Principal Lecturer, Jo Boylan-Kemp was shortlisted in the Most Innovative Teacher of the Year category of the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards.

In June, the University moved up six places in the Guardian University Guide 2016 – to 51st. In April, it climbed 22 places in the overall University of the Year category at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2015 to 13th in the UK.

The National Student Survey results, revealed last month, showed that student satisfaction at the University was at an all-time high, when it shot up 15 places to joint 46th and, in April, the University jumped nine places in the Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey, to joint 31st.
