All of Queen Mary’s subjects scored student satisfaction ratings of between 72 and 88 out of 100. Students at QM’s School of Law were among the most content at the College, giving an 88/100 approval rating for their course. The approval ratings represent the views of final year students in the National Student Satisfaction (NSS) Survey, published in 2011.
Professor Peter Alldridge, Head of the Department of Law, comments: “We are delighted at the continuing high ranking in the Times Good University Guide. Our student satisfaction rating reflects our efforts to combine rigorous legal education with valuable extra-curricular activities, most prominently our Legal Advice Centre and the newly established partnership with the British Institute of Human Rights, in which internships for our students will soon begin.”
Queen Mary’s medical school, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry is ranked in 11th place nationally, receiving high student satisfaction scores of 79 per cent for Medicine and 76 per cent for Dentistry.
The Times Good University Guide rates institutions based on NSS Survey scores, research quality, entry standards, student-staff ratios, spending on services and facilities, the percentage of students who complete their degrees, the number who graduate with first or upper second class degrees, and graduate prospects- the percentage of students who enter further education or graduate level employment within six months of graduation.
