There's never been a better time to join the University of Southampton. We've listened to feedback from our students and made a raft of improvements to our offering, across the board. As a result, we've improved in all 22 areas of the 2012 National Student Survey results.
This year, Southampton has risen dramatically from 55th out of 147 universities to 37th in terms of overall student satisfaction. In the areas of assessment and feedback, we've risen by 8 per cent, with eight subject areas showing increases of more than 20 per cent.
Additionally, 34 of the University’s 46 academic units have achieved a result that is above the national average for student satisfaction. Within the Russell Group, Southampton is ranked 9th out of 24 institutions for student satisfaction, which is a sharp rise from our 2011 position of 17th.
The University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor Education, Professor Debra Humphris says: "My colleagues across the University have been working extremely hard with our Students’ Union to engage with and listen to feedback from our students.
"We have actively responded where this will benefit their experience while they study with us and to give them the knowledge and skills to be successful in their future careers. We’re delighted that this is being recognised through our improved position in the National Student Survey and we look forward to continuing to work with our students to give them an excellent experience at Southampton."
