Student satisfaction at uni is on the rise

Have your say

THE University of Portsmouth has excelled in a student satisfaction survey.

The National Student Survey (NSS) showed that overall satisfaction at the university is 89 per cent, which is one per cent higher than last year and above the national average of 86 per cent.

Professor Paul Hayes, pro vice-chancellor of education and student experience, said: ‘We are committed to delivering an excellent, relevant and rewarding student experience, which we do in part by listening and responding to our students, so it is fantastic to see this reflected in these first-rate results.

‘These strong results show that continued investment in facilities, together with helpful and dedicated staff, provide a better experience for our students.’

Two subject areas achieved 100 per cent satisfaction – nursing, which incorporates Dental Academy courses, and physics and astronomy.

Sports science courses were also rated highly, achieving a 99 per cent satisfaction score.

The survey asks final year students across the UK to give feedback on the quality of their teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources and personal development.
