14 November 2018

James Madison University, a Study Group partner, has come out on top in The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education’s US College Rankings 2019 data.

Through these rankings, the two internationally renowned newspapers give a voice to 200,000 current college students annually. A survey of more than 1,000 colleges and universities asks the questions that matter most to students and their families. It analyses responses on criteria including teaching quality, resources, diversity, and campus community.

One question asked how likely they were to recommend their college or university to a family member or friend. James Madison University had the highest average scores of any US college, meaning that nationwide, students at James Madison University are the most likely to recommend their University.

JMU, a public research university in Harrisonburg, Virginia, offers an unforgettable student experience. The University promotes the enrichment of learning through community engagement and civic responsibility. Students are encouraged to ‘be the change’ they want to see in the world.

Study Group opened JMU International Study Center in 2010. Since then, hundreds of students from all around the world have enrolled on its pathway programmes. Staff members at the ISC prepare international students to begin their university studies with confidence.
