Rise in Student Satisfaction at LSE

The results of the 2013 National Student Survey have been published and LSE has posted its best ever results with an overall satisfaction level of 88 per cent.

NSS-LogoThe findings continue the School’s record of year-on-year improvement, confirming a three percentage point rise in overall satisfaction from last year and a 12 percentage point rise since 2009. This trend can also be seen across the specific categories of ‘Assessment and Feedback’, ‘Academic Support’ and ‘Personal Development’.

Conducted annually since 2005, the National Student Survey canvasses final year undergraduate students at all publicly funded universities in the UK on their feelings about their courses and institutions.

Professor Paul Kelly, pro-director for teaching and learning, commented: “I am very pleased to see that, overall, student satisfaction at LSE has risen for the fourth consecutive year and moved further ahead of the national average. The Teaching Task Force, established in 2007, and the resultant extra £3m invested each year in teaching, are clearly reaping results.

“However it is important to recognise that improvements can still be made, particularly in areas such as feedback, to ensure that LSE remains a world-class institution.”
