The latest figures from the National Student Survey (NSS) indicate Swansea University has jumped into the top 5 for overall student satisfaction.

The NSS is a UK-wide survey of students' views carried out independently and anonymously by Ipsos-MORI. Students are asked their views on areas such as teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, the organisation and management of their course, learning resources, the Student Voice and their Students' Union.

Students at 413 institutions were eligible for the survey, with 2,910 Swansea students participating.

Overall, student satisfaction at Swansea University increased by 1% year-on-year to 89%. Therefore, Swansea University is now in the top 5 universities in the UK for student satisfaction.

Commenting on the ranking, Professor Martin Stringer, Pro Vice-Chancellor at Swansea University said: "I am delighted to see the excellent improvements in overall satisfaction for Swansea University."

"These results reflect the continued efforts of the University to improve the student experience. We work in close partnership with our students, who are a key driver of our continued improvement and success."

"This is the third piece of excellent news we have received recently, building on our success of the Teaching Excellence Framework Gold Award, and our place in the top ten for graduate prospects in the UK."
