Majority of students 'satisfied with university courses'

The majority of students enrolled on university courses in the UK are satisfied with the quality of them, new research has revealed.

According to the National Student Survey, 83 per cent of final year students were pleased with their course in 2011. This represents an increase of one per cent compared to 2010.

However, nine per cent of those polled said they were not satisfied with the quality of their course.

The results were published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and were based on responses from more than 265,000 students at 154 universities across the UK.

It was revealed that students at Brighton and Sussex Medical School are the happiest, with 95 per cent rating their courses highly.

Research published earlier this week by the Push university guide revealed that students beginning university next year can expect to graduate with debts of up to £53,000, with many institutions set to charge tuition fees of £9,000 a year from 2012.
