Leeds one of best in UK for student satisfaction

The University is one of the top in the UK for student satisfaction and joint first in the Russell Group of universities.

The results from the National Student Survey 2018, published today, also position Leeds as joint top for teaching in the Russell Group. 

The independent annual survey is one of the key indicators of how students rate their time at university, and was completed by over 300,000 final-year students in the UK in 2018. The University scored 88% for overall satisfaction, compared to a national average of 83%.

Professor Tom Ward, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Student Education said: 

“Our NSS results are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff across the campus. My sincere thanks to them. 

“The excellent teaching and student experience at Leeds is consistently recognised, through the NSS, the Teaching Excellence Framework, and success in key rankings including a top ten place in the Guardian University Guide this year and a top three in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

“At Leeds we offer a research-based education that emphasises the development of independent, critical thinkers. We also recognise that we need to continue to match the expectations of a hugely diverse student population and community of learners, hence our ongoing investment in digital technology and cutting-edge facilities.”
