Some 86 per cent of students who graduated this summer said they were satisfied with their course, up 1 per cent on the previous year.
A further 7 per cent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied with their higher education experience, and the remaining 7 per cent were dissatisfied, according to the results of the national student survey published on 10 August.
Some 312,000 final-year students responded to the 2016 survey, slightly higher than in the previous two years. The survey was undertaken by students across the UK from 155 higher education institutions, 190 further education colleges and 13 alternative providers of higher education. It was conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the UK funding councils.
