The University of Liverpool is ranked second in the sector and the Russell Group for projected postgraduate research qualification rates, according to a recent report published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
Projections show that 86.3% of Liverpool Home/EU students who started their research degree in 2010/11 are expected to qualify within seven years, an increase of 1.5% from the 2009/10 figure (84.8). Liverpool is only slightly behind King’s and Queen Mary who topped the ranking at 86.8%, and way above the sector average of 72.9%.
The University also takes second place for the percentage of students who are expected to complete their research degree within 25 years, with an anticipated qualification rate of 92.8%, compared to an average of is 80.4% for England. Bradford University takes first place with 96%.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, Professor Dinah Birch said: “The University of Liverpool is committed to offering an outstanding experience for postgraduate research students. The University’s culture of research excellence ensures they are not only at the cutting edge of knowledge but that their talent is nurtured and celebrated.”
HEFCE calculates projected qualification rates over a seven and twenty five year period, on the basis that seven years is the first point by which the majority of students who will complete are expected to have done so, and 25 years is the cut off point at which any student who will ever complete will have done so. The analysis uses a number of measures including subject of study, students domicile, qualification on entry, and the source of funding.
