96% for teaching satisfaction (NSS, 2014)
As a school of education we take things such as the National Student Survey very seriously and we are delighted by our 2014 results.
A massive 96% of students were satisfied with the quality of our teaching during their undergraduate degree. We have seen increases in satisfaction in five out of six of the categories (teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, and personal development) while we remain consistent in the quality of our learning resources. This is a wonderful reflection on the quality of our programmes as well as on our academic and professional staff.
Not only do our students value the academic and personal development opportunities we offer, but they clearly also enjoy their time in Leeds and all of the additional opportunities available. For example, the Students’ Union scored 91% for satisfaction, placing us second amongst Russell Group Universities.
The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual independent survey of undergraduates across the UK. The survey gives students the opportunity to share their opinions on what they liked about their time at a university as well as things that they feel could have been improved.
Jo Pike, Lecturer in Childhood studies, said: "we are absolutely delighted with this result. We consistently strive to deliver a world class teaching and learning experience on our undergraduate programmes and students in the School of Education expect nothing less."
