Student satisfaction remains high at Loughborough

Loughborough has again been ranked as one of the UK’s top universities for student satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey.

Almost 90 percent of the University’s students are satisfied with their course, according to the results of the latest poll, which was published on 6 August.  This rating places Loughborough among the top five publicly-funded universities in the country.

In the survey students are asked to rate their satisfaction with a range of aspects of their degree programme, including the teaching, assessment and feedback from lecturers, the academic support provided and the learning resources available, as well as their overall satisfaction.

Loughborough has consistently been ranked in the top five of the UK’s universities since the survey began.

Professor Morag Bell, Pro Vice Chancellor for Teaching at Loughborough University, said: “We are delighted that our students continue to rate the quality of the education provided at Loughborough so highly. 

“When these results are coupled with the fact that we offer the best student experience in the UK and are the Sunday Times’ University of the Year it is to clear to see why demand for places at Loughborough continues to rise.”
