Hartpury University has continued to buck the UK education sector trend for student satisfaction in the 2019 National Student Survey.
Overall student satisfaction at the specialist institution is 87%, compared to 83.6% for students across the whole sector.
Six courses at Hartpury received 100 per cent overall student satisfaction – Foundation Degree in Sports Business Management, Foundation Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Foundation Degree in Veterinary Nursing Science, BSc (Hons) Bioveterinary Science, BSc (Hons) Applied Animal Science and BA (Hons) Sports Business Management.
Another four courses received overall student satisfaction figures of at least 90 per cent – BSc (Hons) Equestrian Sports Science, BA (Hons) Equine Business Management, Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching and BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching.
Aimed mainly at final-year students, the National Student Survey (NSS) gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education, asking them to provide honest feedback on what it has been like to study on their course at their institution.
The information is aimed at helping prospective students decide where and what to study, while institutions will use the survey to help them improve the student experience.
Rosie Scott-Ward, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Hartpury University, said: “We’re very happy with our results from the 2019 National Student Survey – the first since we received university title in September.
“University title recognises the quality of the teaching that we do at Hartpury, which is reinforced by the results of this latest survey.
“Nothing matters more to us at Hartpury than our 3,600 students – they’re absolutely central to everything we do – and we want to ensure that every single one of them benefits from an outstanding learning experience.
“We want to challenge them to reach their full potential with the support of staff who are passionate about their field of expertise and access to world-leading facilities.
“We’re committed to helping our students find their calling, stand out from the crowd and move into their dream careers.”
