  • The University recorded its best score ever, with an overall score of 90% for student satisfaction this year, a 2% increase on last year. This compares to the national average figure of 85%.

  • Of the 37 subject areas, 29 scored 85% or above and 21 of these scored 90% or above.

The quality of teaching and academic support received was particularly commended. Students felt that staff were good at explaining things, were enthusiastic about what they were teaching and provided sufficient advice and support.

Students are also very happy with learning resources, general IT, access to specialist equipment and facilities, library resources and services.

Personal development was highlighted as an area of distinction, with students reporting an increased ability to present themselves with confidence and feel more confident with tackling unfamiliar problems.

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.
