Satisfaction on the up at Wolverhampton

Satisfaction levels of students at the University of Wolverhampton have risen according to the results of a new national survey.

The National Student Survey (NSS) asks students from all over the country how satisfied they are with their university, course, teaching, support, resources personal development and students’ union.

Overall satisfaction rates at the University of Wolverhampton have risen from 80 per cent in 2014 to 82 per cent this year.

Scores in six of the seven categories of the survey all rose including those in teaching, assessment and feedback and academic support while satisfaction in the learning resources provided remained high at 86 per cent.

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wolverhampton, Professor Geoff Layer, said: “We are always striving to improve the experience for our students, so knowing satisfaction levels are rising is a positive endorsement.

“It shows we are moving in the right direction and that our students are increasingly happy with courses, teaching and resources.

“We have invested heavily in new facilities in the last few years which will have a positive impact on the student experience; with the opening of state-of-the-art learning laboratories in the new Rosalind Franklin science building and new teaching spaces for the Business School’s Lord Swraj Paul Building, which will be opening in October.

“We have also recently announced plans to generate £250m of investment in the University over the next five years including plans for new engineering facilities for students and a significant investment in new teaching technologies to support learners.

“What is really pleasing in that this adds to the fact that our graduate employment levels are at a record high of 95 per cent, the commendation by the Quality Assurance Agency for our learning and teaching and the extremely positive results in the assessment of our research as part of the Research Excellence Framework.

“So we have more students than ever coming to the University of Wolverhampton, getting degrees and going onto to get graduate jobs and careers, boosting the economy and society.”

The NSS is an annual census of students in the final year of a course leading to undergraduate credits or qualifications across the UK.
