Professor Karen Stanton, Vice Chancellor of York St John said: "I am delighted that York St John has been named as the fastest rising university in the North for the 2nd year running, and indeed that our climb of 21 places in the rankings is even better than last year. We put the student experience at the heart of everything that we do, and are constantly striving to enhance our offer to students. This rise in the rankings, bolstered by another year of strong NSS results, shows that this work is really making an impact. That our teaching quality is also rated so highly in the regional table reflects the dedication and commitment of our fantastic staff and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for their efforts."
