Kent voted 3rd in London & Southeast for overall student satisfaction
The 2011 National Student Survey (NSS) of final year undergraduates at HE institutions across the UK has ranked the University of Kent third in London and the Southeast for overall student satisfaction.
With a rate of 88% the University has also received a sixth highest national score for overall satisfaction.
Additionally, Kent has been voted into a top 20 position for the majority of its subjects and has 14 subjects in the top 10 based on overall student satisfaction.
David Nightingale, the University's Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor, welcomed the news. He said: We are delighted that our students continue to feel that we deliver one of the best student experiences in the UK. The latest NSS results also reflect our position as a leading university, with an academic offer that combines teaching and research excellence.'
The University has UK campuses in Canterbury - recently voted by The Complete University Guide as the safest city for students in England and Wales - and Medway.
The NSS is organised by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in partnership with the government and the National Union of Students, and is carried out by independent market research company Ipsos-MORI.
