Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: "This year’s results underline our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning and improving the all-round student experience."

Keele University has been rated among the best in the country for student satisfaction. The University, with an exceptionally high overall satisfaction score of 91%, exceeds the national satisfaction rate of 85% in the latest National Student Survey.

Keele’s overall satisfaction score is its highest ever and places the University fifth in the country, with only Oxford, Cambridge, the Open University and Buckingham ahead.

Keele students found their courses were intellectually stimulating and the staff good at explaining things. Furthermore, the University has acted to improve its performance on assessment and feedback, and performance on those measures has improved over the last 12 months.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: ”I am delighted that Keele has been so highly rated by our students in the National Student Survey. This year’s results underline our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning and improving the all-round student experience.

”Keele is a very special place in which to study and develop and this survey underlines our commitment to the student experience at the University.”

Around 287,000 final-year students responded to the survey this year, an increase of over 20,000 from last year. This represents a response rate of 67%, the highest rate in the eight years the NSS has been running. The results of the survey provide valuable information for prospective students, and help universities and colleges to further improve the education they provide.

The survey provides final year students with an opportunity to make their opinions on their higher education student experience count at a national level.
