The quality of teaching at Anglia Ruskin University has been praised in this year’s National Student Survey (NSS).

Untitled PageA total of 301,796 final year higher education students took part in the survey and results have been published today (Wednesday 12 August).

Of almost 2,800 Anglia Ruskin students who responded, 90% agreed that staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching – among the highest in the country for the second successive year.

For the second year running, Anglia Ruskin’s courses have been rated among the most intellectually stimulating in the country. Students also revealed that their courses help them to present themselves with confidence and that, as a result of their course, they feel confident in tackling unfamiliar problems.

A total of 22 courses scored 100% overall satisfaction from students, including Construction Management, Philosophy, Animal Behaviour, Optometry, and Business Management and Leadership.

Professor Roderick Watkins, Deputy Vice Chancellor at Anglia Ruskin University, said: 

“Anglia Ruskin is constantly looking to make sure our students get the best possible education and of course excellent teaching is vital to ensure that is the case. 

“We’re thrilled that our lecturers are recognised as being enthusiastic and interesting. Inspired students go on to be successful and it is great to know our teaching is making a difference.”
