The National Student Survey

2014 adds to the University's running success in the National Student Survey

The results from the 2014 survey, which was completed by more than 70% of the University of Hull’s final year students, show that:

  • The University achieved an ‘overall satisfaction’ score of 89%.
  • This puts the University of Hull in joint 17th position out of all mainstream Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland; and in joint 13th position out of mainstream English HEIs.
  • Of the 37 subject areas, 32 scored 85% or above, with 20 of these scoring 90% or above.
  • Hull York Medical School (HYMS) achieved an ‘overall satisfaction’ score of 92%, placing it in joint 7th position out of all HEIs in the sector.

For the third year in a row, 80% of students said they were satisfied with their Students’ Union. You can read more on the Hull University Union website.

As in previous years, the University of Hull scored particularly highly in questions relating to the quality of teaching. Students felt that staff were good at explaining things, and were enthusiastic about their subject. Personal development was also highlighted as an area of distinction, with students reporting that their communication skills had improved, and that their course had helped them to present themselves with confidence.

The University’s continuing good results in the NSS league table proves that students at the University continue to be among the happiest in the country.
