Business School Tops the National Student Survey for Third Year Running
The University of Exeter Business School has once again been ranked as the business school with the highest level of satisfaction amongst its students, according to the 2008 National Student Survey. This is the third successive year that the School has been placed at the top of the influential survey. and cements the School’s position as the top business school in the UK for student satisfaction.
The survey was completed by over 200,000 students at more than 100 universities across the country and the University of Exeter was ranked fourth amongst ‘full service’ universities and seventh amongst all universities. The survey asks final year students to rate their university experience in seven areas: teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, personal development and overall satisfaction.
Commenting on the results of the School’s latest success, Professor Alison Wride, Deputy Head of the Business School said “We are absolutely delighted to see this year’s results, which cement our position as the UK’s top Business School for student satisfaction. I do think that they reflect the fact that we offer students an outstanding experience; a first class education alongside wide-ranging support on employability, skills and a whole range of extra-curricular activities. We make it our priority to ensure that students on our degrees leave us with an experience and a degree that really does prepare them for the future. I know from the feedback we get on a daily basis that that they appreciate this but of course it’s very gratifying to have it reflected within the NSS each year.
To be the number one business school three years running is a fantastic achievement and I would like to thank all our staff and students for their hard work. I promise that we won’t be resting on our laurels; we aim to keep on improving in the years ahead.”
