Student satisfaction dips, but remains high

Some 84 per cent of students who graduated this summer said they were satisfied with their course.

The number of students who were happy with their courses has fallen by 2 percentage points on the previous year. However because the design of the survey has changed, the comparison may not be like-for-like, according to the Higher Education Funding Council for England, which published the results on 9 August.

Some 300,000 students took part in the survey this year, down from 312,000 in 2016. The fall in participation may be due to a decision by some student unions to boycott the survey after it was linked to increases in tuition fees through the Teaching Excellence Framework.
