Times Higher Education have announced their shortlist for the University of the Year 2015 award. Five traditional UK universities feature on the six-strong list, with the winner to be announced at a special ceremony this November.
Among those nominated, Coventry University will be hoping to add its 2015 ‘Modern University of the Year’ award to its growing list of honours, while the University of Glasgow, part of the prestigious Russell Group of universities, will be confident.
The University of Kent is the sole representative from the south of England this year, while Loughborough University will be hoping for a University of the Year double header after winning the equivalent ‘Whatuni’ award. Lancaster University, the highest ranked university in the north west of England and in the top 1% of universities globally, completes the list.
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.
