Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln has achieved top ratings in the National Student Survey published today (Thursday 27th September).

BG’s overall satisfaction score rose five points on last year, from 84% to 89%, and three of its degree courses courses are ranked in the top three nationally.

English and Education Studies are both ranked first in the UK for student satisfaction while the Drama course at BG is ranked third in England. The English course at BG achieved maximum marks of 100% in the survey.

Professor Muriel Robinson, Principal of Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln, welcomed today’s data published by HEFCE, the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

“There are lots of higher education league tables out there but the National Student Survey is an accurate measure of what students really think about their degree course, their facilities and their tutors,” she said.

“We’re extremely pleased that the level of satisfaction among our students has increased still further since last year, and we’re delighted that our courses are now being singled out as excellent.

“However, we will never rest on our laurels and we will continue to make improvements in all areas of BG to ensure that satisfaction among our students continues to rise.”

The overall results of the National Student Survey place Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln in the top quarter of UK universities and HE institutions.

BG’s good showing in the survey follows the recent publication of the Which? University Guide 2012, which ranks BG first in the UK for graduate prospects and lists BG as having the highest average graduate salary in the East Midlands.

Meanwhile the Guardian University Guide 2013 published in May ranked the Education Studies degree course at BG as number one in England for job prospects.
