Students praise quality of Bradford experience


Survey results out today show that student satisfaction is improving at the University of Bradford.

National Student Survey (NSS) results show Bradford is on the up for student satisfaction and is ensuring its students are ready for the world of work.

NSS is an annual survey of final year undergraduates across the UK. It provides a key benchmark of satisfaction, looking at a range of measures about course experience.

85% of respondents at the University of Bradford said that they were satisfied with their course, this is a rise from 83% last year. Also scoring highly were the learning resources that the University provides and the assessment and feedback category, both of these were above the sector average.

78% of students said they were satisfied with the Students’ Union, this was ten percent higher than the sector average and places Bradford 22nd in the Country and third in Yorkshire.

Results showed that students rated their courses highly with many courses receiving 95% or higher satisfaction rates. One of the university’s most praised courses was MChem Chemistry for medicines development with 100% of its students saying they were satisfied with the course, 100% praising the learning resources and 97% happy with how the course was assessed and the personal development opportunities available.

With high marks for personal development, students believed that they left university with the personal skills needed to succeed in the world of work.

Scores for the organisation and management of the courses at the University have all improved, pushing them in line with the sector average or above.

The survey is conducted by Ipsos MORI and iscommissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and is fully supported by the National Union of Students (NUS).
