According to the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS), the University of Dundee is one of the best universities in the UK for overall student satisfaction.

The university achieved an overall satisfaction of 88%, well above the industry average of 83%, placing it within the top 10 institutions in the UK.

The National Student Survey is a census of nearly half a million students undertaken independently by Ipsos MORI and evaluates how satisfied students are with the quality of their higher education experience.

Commenting on the accolade, Professor Sir Pete Downes, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University, said, "In Dundee the interests of students are at the heart of everything we do and student representatives are engaged at all levels of decision making. I am grateful to all our staff who really care about students, which shows in the consistent recognition that we provide one of the best student experiences anywhere in the UK."

Meanwhile, Sofia Skevofylaka, President of Dundee University Students' Association (DUSA), added, "We are delighted to see that our students recognise the hard work and drive our University has for creating the best student experience. We are also proud to say that DUSA is ranked in the top ten Higher Education Student Associations in the UK and second in Scotland."
