This is the fourth consecutive year Leeds Beckett has seen a rise in its ranking, moving up 55 places since 2020 and securing its highest ever place in the table.
Leeds Beckett University Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Slee said:
“Our continued focus on our students, on delivering excellence in teaching, learning and research, and our sustained commitment and passion to making a real difference through our work has seen Leeds Beckett University deliver a step change in our outcomes over the last five years. Our rise of 40 places in this year’s Complete University Guide to a ranking of 66th is a great moment for everyone at the university who has worked so hard to drive these improvements for our students and our key stakeholders.”
Chair of Leeds Beckett University board David Lowen said:
“This fantastic rise in our ranking is the result of several years of careful planning, change and hard work by Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Slee, his talented management team, and all the university’s academic and professional services staff. I know I speak on behalf of the Leeds Beckett University board of governors when I give my heartfelt thanks to all involved for their ongoing commitment and focus. Everyone working at the university has played a part in this substantial rise, just as they all contribute to the successes and achievements of each student who joins us here at Leeds Beckett.”
