Students are 97% satisfied in Physical Geography and Environmental Science, ranking us amongst the top universities in the UK. Biology and Related Sciences was also highly rated with 95% overall satisfaction.

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.

Dr Duncan Whyatt, Admissions Tutor for Geography programmes in LEC said: “We are delighted with the result. It reflects our commitment to the quality, depth and diversity of teaching of Physical Geography and Environmental Science.”

Dr Alan Collins, Associate Dean for Undergraduate said: “We are committed to delivering academically challenging degree programmes in a supportive and friendly environment, and we are delighted that our students rate their experience so highly.  We continue to invest in teaching, research and in our facilities to provide the highest standards for our students and the strong National Student Survey results reflect this.”
