KEELE University has been rated the best in the country for student satisfaction.
The University, with an exceptionally high overall satisfaction score of 93%, exceeds the national satisfaction rate of 86% in the latest National Student Survey.
Keele’s overall satisfaction placing is its highest ever and puts the University top among the country's universities for student satisfaction, above the likes of Oxford, Cambridge and the Open University and level with the University of Bath and St Andrews.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: "I am absolutely delighted that Keele students have rated their university so highly in the National Student Survey.
“This year’s exceptional results underline our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning and improving the all-round student experience.”
In each of the eight categories covered by the survey this year, satisfaction has either improved or stayed the same as in 2012. In particular, students’ satisfaction has increased in the areas of assessment and feedback and learning resources, with an improvement of 2% in both categories.
Around 321,000 final-year students responded to this year’s survey – the highest response rate since it began ten years ago.
