Glyndŵr Tops ‘Times’ Ranking
Wrexham Glyndŵr University has topped the rankings for social inclusion in England and Wales in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide for another year!
Glyndŵr Tops ‘Times’ Ranking
The university has held the top ranking for England and Wales yet again in figures released recently. Glyndŵr is also joint-first in the UK for social inclusion alongside Abertay University in Scotland.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Maria Hinfelaar, said: “We’re happy to see this year’s Good University Guide has continued to recognise the work we are doing for social mobility. This year has been challenging for higher education as we have had to shift to remote delivery. It has also been disruptive for individual students.
“In times like these, the value of a university which creates a real community shines through. It’s an attitude which meant our Inclusion Team chose to work on the Bank Holiday during the coronavirus pandemic supporting students whose NHS jobs meant that was the only time they could access help.
“It’s that attitude which saw a student who was told science wasn’t for them be supported through their studies and secure a first. They then gained national recognition for their award-winning research. It’s that attitude which is at the heart of what we do at Glyndŵr.”
Rising Six Further Places
The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide also saw Glyndŵr rise a further six places in its overall rankings.
The rise follows a trend throughout 2020 where Wrexham Glyndŵr University has risen in the Complete University Guide, Guardian University Guide, and WhatUni Student Choice rankings. Additionally, the university has performed strongly in the National Student Survey and the Graduate Outcomes survey.
Professor Hinfelaar added: “We are glad to see how the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide show we are making steady progress in yet another set of rankings. This is something we have been happy to see throughout the year.
“In the National Student Survey, we saw encouraging feedback which showed us ahead of the sector in the UK and Wales. And for a university which puts our students first, it has been heartening to see how happy our students are with their teaching and how well we support them.
“We’ve worked hard to improve our facilities and services. Our resources too. Additionally, there has been new investment to our campuses which students will experience for the first time this academic year. We intend to keep driving that improvement and to keep our students at the forefront of everything we do.”
