LIBF-NSS-Results-2018The National Student Survey (NSS) results came out last week, which show overall student satisfaction with their universities.  We have been rated joint first in London and joint second overall for student satisfaction amongst UK Higher Education Institutions. 91% percent of our students reported that they were satisfied with the quality of their course, with the benchmark being 82%.

The results come from the 2018 edition of the NSS – the largest nationwide survey of student satisfaction. The NSS survey is designed to assess student opinion on the quality of their courses, allowing institutions to get feedback in order to improve students’ experience and informing the choices of prospective students in the future.  We have moved up three places from last year when we were ranked joint fifth in the 2017 for student satisfaction.

Our Associate Dean Hema Tank said:

“We are extremely pleased with the results from this year’s National Student Survey.  Rising from fifth to second place is a great testament to all the hard work and dedication of everyone involved both academic and professional staff.  Our students deserve to receive first-class support and teaching throughout their study at The London Institute of Banking & Finance. These results show that small institutions can provide the same top quality education and excellent student experience as much bigger and better-resourced universities.”

According to Times Higher Education 320,000 students took part in the survey, which dealt with satisfaction on their course, learning opportunities, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, learning community, and student voice. 

The NSS results come off the back of news that the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) revealed that 100% of our full-time students** were in employment or further study 6 months after graduating.
