Figures released today from the National Student Survey show that 88% of BGU students are satisfied with their university experience – that’s higher than the national average of 86% and three percentage points up on BGU’s score last year.

BGU’s Foundation Degree in Applied Studies (Early Childhood) achieved 100% satisfaction while three other courses – Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), Education Studies & English and Education Studies & Mathematics – recorded satisfaction levels of 95%.

The proportion of BGU students completing the survey has also increased significantly; from 64% in 2010 to 72% in 2013 and 87% this year.

The Reverend Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University, welcomed today’s data published by HEFCE, the Higher Education Funding Council for England. “This is an excellent result for BGU,” he said. “We are always keen to hear what our students are telling us about their experiences here and the message is clear from these findings – we are doing better and better.

“The most significant change this year is that the number of students completing the survey increased by 15 percentage points on last year; this means that the feedback from students is much more robust. The staff are committed to giving the students an excellent experience and will be looking at the areas the students are highlighting as things which they perceive needing improvement. But all in all this is a very good result for BGU.”

The latest figures come hot on the heels of a survey published last month which showed that BGU is one of the top five universities in England for the proportion of graduates who are employed or in further study six months after graduating.

According to the DLHE survey (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education) published by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, on 3rd July 2014, 96.5% of Bishop Grosseteste University graduates had found a job or were continuing their studies six months after graduating in 2012/13.

The Which? University Guide currently ranks BGU fifth in England for graduate prospects and lists BGU as having the highest average graduate salary in the East Midlands.
