Cardiff Metropolitan University has recorded its highest ever level of overall student satisfaction and remains the highest ranked ‘new’ (post 1992) university in Wales, according to the National Student Satisfaction Survey (NSS) which was published yesterday (Tuesday 12th August).
The UK-wide independent survey, which is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) on behalf of the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW), asks final year undergraduates across the UK to rate teaching, assessment, academic support, programme organisation, learning resources, personal development and overall satisfaction at university.
Published yesterday, the 2014 NSS results show that 86 per cent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that they were satisfied with the quality of their course overall.
Jacqui Hare, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff Metropolitan University, said: “These are very positive results for Cardiff Met, and once again reflect the hard work of all the staff across the university in partnership with the Student Union.
“We’re extremely pleased to have maintained our position as the top new university in Wales and will continue to strive to provide our students – both from the UK and overseas – with the best possible university experience.”
