Leeds Arts University leads the way for student satisfaction!

21 August 2017

Leeds Arts University is the highest ranked specialist arts university for student satisfaction in the UK!

The National Student Survey (NSS), measures student satisfaction based on teaching, tutor support, feedback, and learning of final year students at education institutions across the UK.

The survey results confirmed that 91% of final year students at Leeds Arts University (formerly Leeds College of Art) reported overall satisfaction with the quality of their course, ranking higher than all other UK specialist arts universities and all universities in Yorkshire. This NSS result is the highest student satisfaction rating Leeds Arts University has ever achieved.

Professor Simone Wonnacott, Vice-Chancellor, Leeds Arts University, 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 specialist arts university 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 acknowledgement of the continued effort to improve the experience for our students, and comes at a significant time as we recently received confirmation of our full university status, meaning we are now 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 University were also ranked highly, with 92% reporting satisfaction with the learning resources, including workshops, IT resources and the University 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.
