University receives its highest ever student satisfaction ratings in survey
Anglia Ruskin University has received its highest ever student satisfaction rating in the annual National Student Survey. Overall satisfaction has increased to 86%, while Anglia Ruskin is rated among the best in the country for assessment and feedback.
The National Student Survey has run for the past 11 years and provides each Higher Education Institution (HEI) with data on each course and allows it to compare with other institutions. The results are based on the responses of almost half a million third-year students studying at 155 UK institutions.
Of the 4,014 Anglia Ruskin students eligible to take the survey, 3,061 (76%) responded. 91% agreed that staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching, and 92% said lecturers are good at explaining things – rating us highly for the third successive year.
The data is split into six question groups, of which Anglia Ruskin scored particularly highly on assessment and feedback, 6% higher than the sector average for satisfaction.
