THE majority of students at universities in our area are happy with their course, according to a survey.

The number of people studying at the University of Portsmouth happy with their degree remained static this year at 85 per cent.

At the University of Chichester 87 per cent of students are happy with their course – a four per cent year-on-year rise.

Findings published today by the Higher Education Funding Council show both universities are above the 83 per cent national average.

Sally Hunt, general secretary of the University and College Union, said: ‘If satisfaction rates are to remain high then universities and staff must be given the resources they need to deliver the quality of education students will continue to expect.’

Liam Burns, National Union of Students president, said: ‘The results show only very slight increases in overall student satisfaction.’
