Edge Hill students have shown their high levels of satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey.

Results from the survey, which was completed by almost 220,000 final year undergraduate students, show Edge Hill excelling on a regional level, ranking second against other North West universities for overall satisfaction. Individual regional successes include:

  • Law (1st)
  • Business (1st)
  • Management (1st)
  • Initial Teacher Training (1st )
  • Nursing (1st)
  • Personal Development (1st)
  • Assessment and Feedback (1st)

The University also celebrated strong national rankings with 83% of students claiming they were satisfied with the overall quality of their course – above the national average and placing Edge Hill 35th out of 89 English public universities.

NHS students considered their practice placement experience the best in the country, with Nursing making the top four nationally. Business and Law and Criminology improved their position from last year’s rankings by entering the top ten in the country.

The University’s strengths in Personal Development are demonstrated with another national top ten position.

John Cater, Vice-Chancellor at Edge Hill University said: “It is vital that any university is endorsed by its own students and we are delighted with the NSS results this year. They are yet another indication of the quality of the student experience at Edge Hill.

“Successes in Law, Business and Nursing against a high national standard are encouraging signs that our continued investment in state-of-the-art learning facilities and high quality academic programmes are meeting the needs of students. Our success in the areas of Personal Development and Assessment and Feedback are a testament to the hard work of staff supporting every student in their studies.”
