WLV courses with 100% student satisfaction

Every year, the National Student Survey (NSS) asks our students what they think of their course, and each year an exclusive number of courses gain the hallowed honour of reaching the highest level – 100% satisfaction.

Testament to our hard-working and dedicated staff – and students – here we run down in A-Z the courses which achieved top billing with our students this year.

1. Architectural Design Technology

If you want to become a Chartered Architectural Technologist, studying on a Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and Chartered Association of Building Engineers accredited course is a good place to start. And when your fellow students are 100% satisfied, you know you’ll be building on the best foundation to see your ideas realised.

2. Biological Sciences

Our BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences course has recognition from the Society of Biology, which automatically qualifies our graduates for Associate Membership of the Society. This, combined with inspiring teaching and the top-class facilities in our Rosalind Franklin building means our students know they’re getting their money’s worth. With Foundation Year, sandwich placement, and integrated Master’s MBiol (Hons) options available, find your route into Biology.

3. English

English. The Power of Words. We’re delivering something equally powerful, equipping our students with the skills to pursue a multitude of careers which acknowledge the importance of what we say and how we say it. And we’re doing it right – as for two years in a row, our BA (Hons) English students are 100% satisfied with their course. With a number of fascinating joint options available, you'll find plenty to get you thinking in a new way about our native language.

4. Exercise and Health

With Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) L2 Gym Instructor, L3 Personal Trainer and L3 GP Referral awards an intrinsic part of our BSc (Hons) Exercise and Health degree, it’s no wonder our students feel well prepared for life after graduation and are 100% satisfied with their course.

5. Fire and Rescue    

It’s reassuring to know that the students on our BSc (Hons) Fire and Rescue, seeking a career at the frontline of public service in physically demanding, and often dangerous roles, are 100% satisfied with their course at Wolverhampton. Recognised by the Institution of Fire Engineers, our course is also available as a distance learning option – another way (like our partnerships below) we’re not letting something as simple as your location from preventing you realising your ambitions.
