Satisfied students place us in the top ten, eight years running.

The results from the annual National Student Survey (NSS) have been announced, with the University of Leicester sitting proudly at number four in the table of English higher education institutions.

Leicester is the top university in its region for satisfaction levels and nationally only narrowly behind the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Bath, according to full-time undergraduate students in England who responded to this year’s National Student Survey.

The results, published today, mean that Leicester has held its top 10 position for satisfying students at English universities since the NSS began in 2005.

Leicester’s ranking is based on the average score from 23 questions covering all aspects of the student experience including teaching, assessment, support, management and resources. In 2012, 287,000 final-year students from across the UK responded to the NSS.
