Students at a Shropshire university are amongst the happiest in the country, according to new figures published today using feedback from the National Student Survey.
It showed that 91 per cent of students being taught at Harper Adams University College in Edgmond, near Newport, were satisfied with the quality of their course.
That is well ahead of the benchmark of 85 per cent set by the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
Just 20 institutions scored higher than 90 per cent.
University College principal Dr David Llewellyn said he was delighted.
Dr Llewellyn said: “This is a tremendous outcome for Harper Adams and demonstrates the high quality of the student experience that we work hard to deliver.
“Our results in key subjects such as agriculture, for example, are even better, placing us in the leading position within the higher education sector.
“With our outstanding graduate employability performance reported only a few months ago, this is a very positive start to the new academic year.”
Academic registrar Dr Abigail Hind added: “We are thrilled that, once again, our students have recorded satisfaction rates that are better than the sector average on each of the seven survey themes – teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, personal development and the Students’ Union – as well as on overall satisfaction.
