Queen Mary is top Russell Group university in London for student satisfaction

Student satisfaction is higher at Queen Mary University of London than at any other big university in the capital for the second year running, according to the latest results of a nationwide survey of final-year undergraduates.

The 2013 National Student Survey (NSS) questioned UK undergraduates on various aspects of their student experience, including their overall satisfaction.

The NSS survey results show that, in a five-year high, 89 per cent of QM students are satisfied with the quality of their course, three percentage points above the national average.

A large number of our Schools also feature in the top 10 nationally for NSS 2013:

  • Finance: ranked 1st; 98 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Genetics: ranked 2nd; 96 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Economics: ranked joint 3rd; 97 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Drama: ranked joint 3rd; 97 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Materials and Minerals Technology: ranked 4th; 93 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Medicine: ranked joint 4th; 96 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Comparative Literary Studies: ranked joint 4th; 94 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Computer Science: ranked joint 6th; 93 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Aerospace Engineering: ranked 8th; 90 per cent overall satisfaction
  • Dentistry: ranked joint 8th; 93 per cent overall satisfaction

Professor Susan Dilly, Vice-Principal for Teaching and Learning at Queen Mary, welcomed the results: “In addition to improving our own results each year since 2008, we have reinforced our position in London and on a national level, particularly against other Russell Group universities. We are committed to providing an all-round excellent student experience, and the NSS results prove that we listen to what our students want and act on that feedback.”
