Economics and Finance first in London for student satisfaction

13 August 2015

Both Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London are first in London for student satisfaction, according to the latest results of a nationwide survey of final-year undergraduates.

The 2015 National Student Survey (NSS) questioned UK undergraduates on various aspects of their student experience, including their overall satisfaction.

The NSS survey results show that overall satisfaction amongst QMUL Economics students is 94 per cent and 96 per cent for its Finance students.

Out of the 78 UK institutions that run Economics degrees, QMUL is joint ninth, while Finance at QMUL is joint sixth nationally out of 73 institutions.

Among the Russell Group universities Economics at QMUL is ranked second for student satisfaction, and Finance is first.

Professor Barbara Petrongolo, Head of the School of Economics and Finance at QMUL, welcomed the results: "These results underline our commitment to investing in the student experience at QMUL. The excellent ranking of both subject areas is a testament to the efforts of academics and support staff at the School. We look forward to further improving student satisfaction as we prepare to move into new custom built premises at the Mile End campus."
