NSS results show high rates of student satisfaction at Alliance universities

Following the release of 2009 National Student Survey results Libby Aston, Director of University Alliance, said:

“Student satisfaction ratings at Alliance universities remain very high with 81% of students agreeing or strongly agreeing that overall, they were satisfied with the quality of their course.  Seven Alliance universities increased their overall satisfaction rating in comparison to last year and many improvements were made across specific areas.”

“Alliance universities are committed to providing high-quality, academic learning in a researchengaged environment.  Due to our expertise in delivering professional and executive education, students at Alliance universities are dedicated and focussed in their studies with high expectations.  These results reflect the hard work of our institutions to put students at the heart of the university learning experience.  We will continue to strive towards excellence across all areas, equipping graduates for the 21st century.”
