Lancaster Environment Centre students are some of happiest in the country, with between 96% and 100% saying they are satisfied with their course, according to the 2013 National Student Survey

For the second year running, every biological sciences student who responded said they were satisfied with their course.  Geography and Environmental science also did brilliantly with 97% of students satisfied, and Ecology and Conservation was close behind with 96%.

These scores are well above the national average of 85% of students satisfied with their course, and even beats Lancaster University’s high performing 90% score, which is amongst the top 10% of universities nationally and the best in the North West of England.

The National Student Survey asks all final year undergraduate students in the UK what they think of their time at university. This year 300,000 students responded.

Professor Phil Barker, head of undergraduate admissions at the Lancaster Environment Centre, said: “We want our students to thrive and love their time here, as well as gain an excellent education and good job prospects. We try to encourage and support, as well as push and challenge our students. It’s great to see our friendly approach to learning being recognised in these excellent scores”
