Stu­dents ‘sat­is­fied’

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS at North-east uni­ver­si­ties are among the most sat­is­fied in Scot­land.

An an­nual sur­vey ask­ing how sat­is­fied un­der­grad­u­ates are with their course has ranked the Univer­sity of Aberdeen as joint third best in Scot­land.

Aberdeen re­ceived a rat­ing of 88% and Robert Gor­don Univer­sity was not far be­hind with 86%.

A to­tal of 14 in­sti­tu­tions took part in the study.

The univer­sity of St Andr e ws , S c o t l a n d ’ s old­est univer­sity, took the top spot in the an­nual sur­vey with a rank­ing of 93%.

Across Scot­land 86% of stu­dents said they were happy with their course.

Graeme Kirk­patrick, de­pute pres­i­dent of NUS Scot­land, said: “It’s ex­cel­lent news that for stu­dents in Scot­land the over­all sat­is­fac­tion rate with their univer­sity re­mains high, but there is a lot of room for im­prove­ment.

“There are clearly still se­ri­ous con­cerns over the qual­ity of feed­back from lec­tur­ers and tu­tors.”
