Overall, the data shows that student satisfaction across all 100 universities reviews has increased for the second year running – from 81 percent last year to 83 percent now – but four areas have seen pretty significant drops: including job prospects, student support, clubs & societies and student union.

Newcastle University beat both Oxford and Cambridge, which came 50th and 46th respectively; and Durham, which came 29th. Northumbria came 33rd, whilst other big city northern universities ranked 41st (Liverpool); 89th (Manchester); 5th (Leeds); and 21st (Sheffield).

Harper Adams University in Shropshire topped the list, whilst Winchester came 100th.
