Professor Simone Wonnacott, Principal, Leeds College of Art said:

“We are delighted to see such a high level of overall satisfaction from our students, reflected in the National Students Survey 2017. To be the highest ranked independent higher education arts institution is testament to the dedication of our staff to deliver a high quality teaching experience for our students.

To increase our score once again is an important acknowledgment of the continued effort to improve the experience for our students, and comes at a significant time as we head towards becoming the only specialist arts university in the North of England. We are grateful that so many of our students chose to share their views in recognition of this.”

The industry standard facilities at the College were also ranked highly, with 92% reporting satisfaction with the learning resources, including workshops, IT resources and the College library.

The NSS is a nationally recognised annual survey commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, giving final year undergraduate students an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback on what it has been like to study on their course. Full results are available here.
