Satisfied students again place EDA in NSS top ten

The 2011 National Student Survey (NSS) of final year undergraduates at HE institutions across the UK has ranked the University of Kent third in London and the Southeast for overall student satisfaction. With a rate of 88% the University has also received a sixth highest national score for overall satisfaction.

EDA is delighted to report that the areas of higher satisfaction in Electronic and Electrical Engineering included: the enthusiasm of our staff (97%, an increase of 4% on last year), the ability of students being able to contact our staff when needed (97%, an increase of 4% on last year), academic staff explaining things clearly (94%, in increase of 1%) good advice being readily available for study choices (92%, an increase of 10% on last year), an efficient timetable system (89%, an increase of 7% on last year) and students receiving sufficient advice and support (89%, an increase of 3% on last year).

This shows that EDA’s students continue to be happy with what we’re doing for them, that they are happy with our courses and tutors and the support they are getting from staff. The work doesn’t stop though! We are keen to keep improving the student experience and will be reviewing these results and working with our staff to improve student satisfaction even further for next year.

Professor Sarah Spurgeon, Head of School, comments “Good feedback is crucial and pleasing at all levels of education. I am delighted that satisfaction continues to rise and feel proud to lead such a successful provider of quality courses”
