Student satisfaction figures from the National Student Survey (NSS) have been published, revealing that 84% of Leeds Beckett students were satisfied overall with the quality of their course.
90% of students agreed that staff were good at explaining things, and that the library resources and services were good enough for their needs.
Courses given 100% student satisfaction by final year students were:
- BA (Hons) Early Childhood Education leading to QTS
- BA (Hons) Sport Development
- BA (Hons) Human Geography
- BSc (Hons) Broadcast Media Technologies
- BSc (Hons) Business Information Technology
- BA (Hons) Journalism
- BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
- BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy
- BA (Hons) Playwork
The NSS is an independent survey of final year undergraduate students on their experiences at university.
Professor Phil Cardew, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), said: “I’m pleased to see that our scores have once again increased across most measures; and in 19 of the 24 areas we have recorded our best ever scores. We are committed to providing an excellent education and experience for our students and really value all feedback we receive from them; the next stage will be to look at where further improvements are needed in order to deliver the service our students rightly expect.”
The results come on the back of new employability statistics revealing that Leeds Beckett was fourth in the UK for graduate employment in the recent Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey, with 97% of UK graduates being in work or further study six months after completing their course.
