That score puts the University in the top ten of mainstream institutions.

Professor Eunice Simmons, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Nottingham Trent, said: “Our results this year build on an excellent trajectory of six years of continuous improvement in position relative to competitors. We are the largest university in terms of undergraduate student numbers of any institution in the top 20 which makes this score particularly pleasing.

“We also achieved fantastic scores for our libraries and specialist learning resources which demonstrates our student-focused investment plan is working.”
