Students Satisfied at Staffs


Staffordshire University is in the Top 10 of The Complete University Guide for student satisfaction.

It tops the 11 universities in the West Midlands for student satisfaction and places joint 8th nationally.

It has climbed 15 places since last year, in now ranks 58th out of all the universities in the U.K.

Student satisfaction is based on how the students view the quality of teaching.

The university’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Liz Barnes, says: “This is excellent news for our students, staff and anyone thinking of studying with us.

“It shows we are delivering on our mission to provide great teaching, facilities and overall student experience.”

The university ranks number one for student satisfaction in the West Midlands and also ranks 2nd for Academic Services Spend in the region.

This is measured by how the much the university spends on services such as books and computing facilities.

Kev Reynolds, a post-graduate student, says: “I think student satisfaction is extremely important because if the quality of lecturing or teaching wasn’t monitored then there would be no way of holding education to account.”

The university’s journey began in 1914, boasting over 100 years of educational heritage and finally gained university status in 1992.

It is also the first university in the country where students can study a degree in E-Sports, a course where students learn the business aspects creating multiplayer video-games for spectators.

In 2017, the university was recognised with a ‘silver’ award in the Teaching Excellence Framework, proving that it exceeds national standards for teaching and learning.

President of the Student’s Union, Tash Crump, says: “The whole of the Student’s Union is thrilled to see this reflected in another substantial climb in this table and we’re all very proud.”

The university continues to excel in providing students at Staffordshire University with the best possible experiences, facilities and opportunities, which will hopefully enable it to move further up the ranks in the Top 10 for student satisfaction of the Complete University’s Guide next year.
