The University of Law comes top in National Student Survey

De Broc School of Business is pleased to announce that The University of Law (ULaw), has ranked highly across a number of categories in the 2016 National Student Survey. This includes ranking first among private and public universities in the United Kingdom for overall student satisfaction.

According to the results of this year’s National Student Survey, ULaw received an overall student satisfaction score of 97 per cent, as voted for by final year students studying The University of Law LLB (Hons) programme.

In a year when the average student satisfaction levels were largely unchanged across the country, ULaw seemingly bucked the trend, improving its score by an impressive 9 per cent over 2015.

De Broc is also pleased to announce that ULaw’s tutors achieved the highest ranking in the sector for enthusiasm about the subject they teach and for their ability to explain these subjects.

Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer at ULaw, said: “At The University of Law we place enormous value on feedback from our students, so this is a wonderful result for us.  Our mission is always to place the quality of our teaching at the heart of all that we do as a university.

“We know that students respond extremely positively to the law being taught in a practical, applied and highly dynamic way. Having extremely motivated and hugely enthusiastic staff who have all practiced law adds a depth of understanding and excitement to the learning process, which our students clearly enjoy and appreciate.”

In addition to these excellent results, ULaw students were also satisfied with the overall programme delivery, giving the second highest score (97%) in the country for teaching quality. The university also ranked third place for the ‘academic support’ and ‘organisation and management’ categories.

As the business faculty of The University of Law, De Broc prides itself on delivering the same high quality of education as ULaw.

The National Student Survey is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). It comprises 23 questions which cover all main aspects of the learning experience and takes into account the opinions of almost half a million final year students in higher education. The results of the survey are conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of UK funding bodies.
