Bangor students are amongst the most satisfied in the UK
The National Student Survey (NSS) results reflects the University’s focus on overall student experience. The results – released August 2017 – places Bangor amongst the UK’s top 10 universities for student satisfaction*
A long tradition of academic excellence
Professor Oliver Turnbull, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Teaching & Learning at Bangor University commented on the results saying:
“These are a wonderful endorsement of our activities, and indeed of Bangor University’s values. We have long been renowned for providing not only excellent teaching but also student support, and these results yet again reflect this. The data should also be really valuable for prospective students, who will make decisions about University places over the next few weeks."
Thirteen degree courses achieved 100% satisfaction rates from the students, and nine general subject areas have also achieved 100% satisfaction, placing them at the top of their subject table in the UK. Bangor University’s average satisfaction rate of 90% is above the UK and Wales averages of 84%.
The NSS results provide the most comprehensive feedback on the student experience at each institution, drilling down to school, course and programme level and also drawing on broader information about areas such as teaching and assessment and feedback.
Investment in the student experience
An on-going investment in facilities and services is further enhancing the Bangor student experience.
