The top five remained the same, while Loughborough University and University College London moved into the top ten having ranked 11th and 13th respectively last year.

Other notable risers included Manchester Metropolitan, (16 places to 57th), Harper Adams University (14 places to 46th) and the University of Buckingham (14 places to 55th).

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
