Which university was voted the best in Britain?

By Alison Kershaw

Sheffield University is the best place in Britain to study for a degree, according to the Times Higher Education student experience survey.

The South Yorkshire campus rose from third place in a national table last year to secure first place, knocking the previous winner, the University of East Anglia, off the top spot.

Full-time undergraduates were asked to rank their universities in 21 categories, including the quality of staff, lectures, social life and accommodation, with more than 14,000 students responding.

A breakdown of the results by category shows that Oxford was the most highly rated by students for high-quality staff and lectures, Sheffield was top for its students' union and Bath scored the highest for industry connections.

The top 10:

1. Sheffield

2. Bath

3. University of East Anglia

4. Oxford/Dundee

6. Cambridge

7. Exeter

8. Durham

9. Leeds

10. Nottingham
