THE University of Portsmouth’s students’ union has been named the best on the south coast and in the top 20 nationally.

The National Student Survey is a national initiative, commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and surveys final year students on all aspects of student life.

The survey allows prospective students, their families and advisors to make informed choices about where they study.

In relation to the students’ union, students were asked to rate their satisfaction.

Almost 80 per cent of University of Portsmouth students who completed the survey said they were satisfied with their union.

Union president Grant Clarke said: ‘I am incredibly pleased that the union has improved again on last year’s result and keeping us ahead of the national average, and being placed at number 17 in the national comparative table makes us the best students’ union on the south coast.

‘I believe this result continues to show our dedication to make student lives easier and we hope to continue this trend next year.’
