Students on the Brayford Pool Students have rated the University of Lincoln among the best in the country for overall student satisfaction in the latest National Student Survey (NSS), placing it at 7th in the UK.

Results of this year’s NSS were published today (27th July 2018) and rank the University out of of 127 institutions.

The NSS results measure how satisfied students are with their course, academic support, the institution’s community and having their views listened to. This latest success follows on from the ranking in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2019 earlier this year.

The institution, which has invested more than £300 million in its campus and facilities over the past two decades, was also rated TEF Gold – the highest standard possible – in a national independent assessment of teaching quality in higher education in 2017.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “The student experience is at the heart of everything we do at Lincoln and we are delighted to see our hard work reflected in today’s results. Our academic and professional service staff excel at shaping our students into confident, articulate graduates through robust support during the challenge of their undergraduate degree studies.

“They do this by making sure that the student voice is one of the loudest on campus; we engage with them on everything from teaching to the development of our institution, because we understand that we have a responsibility to meet their expectations and invest in their success. These results are testament to how valued our students find their time at Lincoln, and would like to thank them and our staff, for everything they do to make the University of Lincoln such a fantastic and successful institution.”

The NSS is completed by final year undergraduate students, and is commissioned by the Office for Students (OfS), formerly the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). The survey, carried out by Ipsos MORI, requires students to answer 27 questions relating to eight aspects of the student experience. It runs across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
