The results of the latest National Student Survey (NSS) have revealed that 88 per cent of students at the University of Northampton are satisfied.
The figure is the highest in the university’s history and places the institution in the top 44, when compared to all Higher Education Institutions in England.
More than 64 per cent of eligible University of Northampton final year students completed the survey this year, representing the views of more than 2,700 students at the university.
Nick Petford, vice-chancellor of the University of Northampton, said: “At the University of Northampton, we strive to offer all our students an outstanding academic and student experience and so we are delighted that this is reflected in this year’s NSS Survey.
“This result demonstrates that the University of Northampton is definitely on the up, as it follows on from our tremendous leap in both the Complete University Guide 2014 and the Guardian League Table 2014.
“Student experience is at the heart of what we do. We are proud of our state-of-the-art facilities and technology that ensures all students have access to extensive libraries, IT suites, studios, innovative learning spaces and laboratories. We have also invested millions of pounds in new facilities and buildings across both campuses, which are close-knit, yet large enough to offer students everything they need.”
The NSS is a nationally recognised and independent annual census of over a quarter of a million UK students. It gives final year students at universities across the country the opportunity to have their say on how satisfied they are with their university.
Questions cover a number of areas including teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, personal development and overall satisfaction. Students are also given the opportunity to give positive or negative comments on their whole student learning experience at their university or college.
