Students taking part in this year’s National Student Survey gave an overall satisfaction rating of 98 per cent in the category for History

The National Student Survey is published every year and measures the satisfaction of students at Higher Education institutions across the UK. Final year students are asked about teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, personal development and overall satisfaction.

History students also gave a high satisfaction rating, 98 per cent.

The results of the 2017 National Student Survey reveal that 91 per cent of Lancaster University students are satisfied with their course - seven per cent higher than the national average of 84 per cent. 

According to Times Higher Education, this means that Lancaster is ranked fourth in the UK for student satisfaction, when FE colleges and small or specialist providers are excluded.

It is further evidence of the high quality of the student experience at Lancaster and follows closely on the heels of a Gold Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework, which measures teaching quality alongside employment outcomes and programme completion.
