Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London is ranked joint 1st in London with an overall student satisfaction rate of 94 per cent, 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.

Students on the BSc Physics programme expressed a satisfaction rate of 100% with their overall experience of physics at Queen Mary with a 90% satisfaction score for teaching.  Our students are amongst the most satisfied in the Russell Group with satisfaction rates in the top quartile for all physics programmes. 

94% of BSc Physics students are satisfied with learning resources, in a five-year high, 85 per cent of QMUL students are satisfied with IT resources, and 83 per cent with library resources.

Also, more students than ever were satisfied with QMUL’s Students’ Union, which increased three per cent since 2013 to 71 per cent against the national average of 67 per cent.

The Students’ Union provide sports clubs with access to world-class facilities at the Queen Elizabeth Park, societies for all interests, student media and volunteering opportunities, and they represent the student voice and support individual needs.
