King's College prevails in student satisfaction test

King’s College London’s law school has topped a recent student satisfaction survey of higher education providers.

The National Student Survey (NSS) gave the undergraduate law school an overall satisfaction rating of 4.6.

Edge Hill College of Higher Education and University College London came joint second, with overall satisfaction grades of 4.5.

Brunel University came second to last with overall satisfaction of 3.5, and the University of Surrey ranked last, with overall satisfaction at 3.1.

A spokesperson for Brunel said: “This particular finding is not unexpected due to the disruption on campus as part of the 170m redevelopment of our Uxbridge site.”

A spokesperson for Surrey said: “The outcomes of the NSS have shown that improvements need to be made in some areas of teaching and learning at the University of Surrey, including law.

“The university is committed to a programme of continuous improvement in all aspects of the student experience and is implementing an academic reform programme to address these issues.”

The NSS is part of the Teaching Quality website, which gathers information about the quality of higher education in UK universities.
