Bath tops NSS

The University of Bath is top in the UK for student satisfaction for the second year running, with an overall satisfaction rate of 93%

The results of the 2014 National Student Survey (NSS) once again place Bath University at the top of the national table of 130 higher education institutions for overall student satisfaction.

The overall satisfaction rate for University of Bath students is 93%, a score shared with Keele University and the University of St. Andrews, and 7% above the UK national average.

In the subject rankings, it achieved four placings of first or first equal. Three subjects – Psychology, Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering – received the maximum possible score of 100% satisfaction. Mechanical Engineering and Business Studies both achieved the feat of being placed first in the UK for a second year running.

The University’s Student’s Union was also again ranked amongst the top 10 students’ unions in the country.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell, said: “To have once again been ranked by our students as number one is wonderful news and shows the sustained effectiveness of the partnership between our students and our staff.

“The all-round experience we seek to provide at Bath is clearly something which our students appreciate very highly and the whole University community must be congratulated on what is an outstanding achievement.”
