Students give us their seal of approval

Molecular Biology and Chemistry programmes at Queen Mary University of London are ranked second in London for student satisfaction, according to the latest results of a nationwide poll of final-year undergraduates.


The 2014 National Student Survey (NSS) questioned UK undergraduates on various aspects of their student experience, including their overall satisfaction.

Professor Matthew Evans, Head of the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at QMUL, welcomed the results:

“I am very pleased to see the excellent NSS results in chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, which show that the students in our School are appreciative of the efforts that the staff here make to ensure they have the highest quality education and experience while they are with us.

The NSS results show that students studying:

  • Molecular Biology programmes at the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences are 95% satisfied, making it joint 2nd in London
  • Chemistry programmes are 89% satisfied, ranking it 2nd in London also.

The NSS survey results also showed that:

  • 86% of QMUL students are satisfied with the teaching on their course
  • 80% are pleased with learning resources - in a five-year high, 85% of QMUL students are satisfied with IT resources, and 83% with library resources
  • More students than ever were satisfied with QMUL’s Students’ Union, which increased three per cent since 2013 to 71% against the national average of 67%.
