Vice-Chancellor of the University of Winchester, Professor Sarah Greer said:

“We are delighted with these outstanding results. They show that the University is succeeding in giving our students the skills and knowledge required by employers in a competitive jobs market.

“Thanks to the hard work of our students, supported by the hard work of staff across the University, our graduates have the skills and confidence to succeed in their chosen careers.

“In particular, at a time when the UK urgently needs more highly qualified nurses, allied health professionals and teachers, the University of Winchester is meeting the need by educating high quality and highly-motivated graduates to embark on careers in these sectors.”
