Posted 8 June

“We will be doing all we can, in the years ahead, to maintain our strong performance, the support we provide for our academic community and the excellent work we undertake with the industries and professions in our specialist field to ensure that our students receive the very best experience when studying at the University.”

A fine horizon – the Harper Adams University main building and other campus buildings as seen from the air.

Harper Adams University has risen eight places in the Complete University Guide 2022.

The Guide also rated Harper Adams first in the country for its level of spending on student facilities such as careers, health and counselling and sport services, and second in the UK for its graduate prospects ‘on track’ – which measures how well recent graduates feel their current activity fits with their future career plans.

Overall the University - which also holds its position as the highest-placed Modern University – rose eight places to 33rd in this year’s rankings.

The Complete University Guide compiles rankings on 130 universities across the country and has been published for more than 25 years, examining institutions on a range of measures. These include spending on both academic services and student facilities, entry standards and student satisfaction, the quality and intensity of research, the student-staff ratio at an institution, the level of completion and the prospects for graduates.

Among other ratings for Harper Adams this year, the University has seen a rise of seven places in the Guide’s Mechanical Engineering subject tables – making it the second placed regional university for the West Midlands.  

Harper Adams University Vice-Chancellor, Dr David Llewellyn, added: “It was great to see Harper Adams climb up the Complete University Guide 2022. 

“We have, once again, held the position of the Guide’s highest placed Modern University which is a testament to the hard work of our staff and students and the high quality of the education that we provide. 

“We will be doing all we can, in the years ahead, to maintain our strong performance, the support we provide for our academic community and the excellent work we undertake with the industries and professions in our specialist field to ensure that our students receive the very best experience when studying at the University.”
