Brighton Uni tops the rankings

More students have given the University of Brighton top marks in a national poll, and nearly 90% said they would recommend the university as a place to study.

Results from this year's National Student Survey showed 86% of students were satisfied with their time at the university.

The level of satisfaction went even higher – 90% or more – for a host of subjects including: architecture, design, fine art, teacher training, history, philosophy, geology, geography, physiotherapy, medicine, pharmacy, engineering and mathematics.

Courses scoring 100% satisfaction included humanities, 3D Design, education, tourism, sport and leisure management, occupational therapy, podiatry, social science, ecology and biogeography, project management for construction, early years care and paramedic practice.

More University of Brighton students than ever responded to the survey – 3,043 or 72%, up five per cent on the previous year and almost four per cent higher than the average for all universities in the country.

The NSS results, published annually by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, saw the University of Brighton improve or sustain its ratings in all questionnaire categories.

Students reserved their highest praise for the standard of teaching, academic support, learning resources, personal development and work placements which scored 85%, three per cent up on last year.

Some 87% of respondents said they would recommend the university, six per cent more than the national average. And 88% said their courses had improved their career prospects, two per cent above the average.

University staff consistently rated highly for "explaining things", for "making the subject interesting" and for being "enthusiastic". Some 85 per cent of students reported their courses were "intellectually stimulating", and more than 80 per cent said they received sufficient advice and support. Almost 90 per cent said their contribution during their time on work placements was valued.

Brighton and Sussex Medical School, run jointly by the universities of Brighton and Sussex, scored 95% overall satisfaction – nine per cent above average for UK medical schools. Quality of teaching and staff explaining the subject well both scored 97%, with staff enthusiasm rated at 96%. Students scored 'enhanced personal development' at 94%, and there was a 95% mark for improved communications skills and 96% for enhanced confidence in tackling unfamiliar problems – essential skills for a career in medicine.
