A COLLEGE is celebrating the success of its partner university.

Accrington and Rossendale College has welcomed the high ranking of Huddersfield University in a national university guide.

Congratulations to Huddersfield were made on social media by Accross, whose courses are validated by Huddersfield. The Guardian University guide ranked Huddersfield second nationally, behind Cambridge.

An education panel with the Guardian rated the university as scoring 100 out of 100 overall, and said 100 per cent of students surveyed were satisfied with their course.

An Accross spokesperson said: “Congratulations to our partner Huddersfield University which for a fifth consecutive year was ranked the number two university in the country.”
