Loughborough ranked 2nd university in England for overall student satisfaction in national survey

Loughborough is the second highest ranked university in England for overall student satisfaction, according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS), published today (15th July 2021).

The independent NSS asks students for honest feedback about what it’s like to study at their institution, and to rank their overall satisfaction for their university.

Over 85% of the Loughborough students who completed this year’s NSS agreed they were satisfied with their course*, compared to the national average of 75%. This places Loughborough second out of the non-specialist universities in England, and third in the UK.

Speaking about this year’s NSS results Professor Robert Allison, Vice-Chancellor of Loughborough University, said: “Thank you to everyone across the University and Students’ Union, who work tirelessly to ensure all our students get the very best out of their time at Loughborough. This has been a particularly challenging year for us all and I am very proud of the way in which our students and colleagues have responded. Our continued success in the NSS is testament to your dedication and commitment.”
