Lincoln rates among the best for student satisfaction
Student in a seminar The University of Lincoln has been rated among the best universities in the UK for student satisfaction.

The latest National Student Survey, published today (Tuesday 12th August 2014), places Lincoln in the top third nationally based on an average score across all 22 questions.

The University scored on or above the national average on every category of the survey, which covers teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation, learning resources and personal development.

Professor Scott Davidson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “We are delighted that students rate their experience at the University of Lincoln so highly. Almost three quarters of our final year undergraduates completed the survey and it is clear that they valued the quality of teaching on their courses, particularly the enthusiasm of staff.
“These results are a great testament to the quality of teaching across the whole institution, and just as importantly, how our lecturers excel at developing their students into confident, articulate graduates.”

On questions related to personal development, Lincoln was scored higher than the sector average on each count and in the top quarter overall.

At subject level, there was positive feedback across all three of the University's academic Colleges with a number of courses rated in the top 20 per cent nationally for their subject areas. These included Journalism, Psychology, Drama, English and Sport & Exercise Science.

The National Student Survey (NSS) has been conducted by Ipsos MORI annually since 2005. The survey asks final year undergraduates to provide honest feedback on what it has been like to study their course at their institution. It runs across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
