The University’s sexual health support has been ranked 20th in the country, according to research released this week.
The report, carried out by the online medical service Dr. Ed, puts Leeds near the bottom of the sexual health league table, ranking 20th out of 24 universities.
Assessing the top UK universities on the quality and availability of their sexual health advice, researchers from Dr. Ed awarded Leeds an overall grade of a Third.
York scored a 2:1, whilst Nottingham University topped the league table with a First. Praise was given to the University’s online resources – scoring an A grade – but an F was awarded for student satisfaction with the advice given.
Welfare officer Katie Siddall dismissed the findings, saying, “I don’t think that this survey is an appropriate way to assess the standards of our student support.
We are immensely proud of the services we have here in the Union and on campus.” “Of course, all feedback is useful, but we continue to use direct feedback from our members who use the services.”
