July 2021: Regent College London received 90% in the National Student Survey 2021!
Another exciting announcement came in July! Regent College London were very proud to share that we received an incredible score of 90% in the National Student Survey. This placed the college in the top 14% of the higher education providers that were surveyed.
The National Student Survey is a survey carried out by Texunatech on behalf of the Office for Students, which surveyed over 4 million students in the UK regarding their higher education experience. There are many factors that students are asked about such as facilities and resources, teaching experiences and learning opportunities, and much more. The survey is based on what students think and how they see their higher education provider.
This was an excellent achievement for Regent College London, as not only did we receive a score of 90% for Overall Satisfaction, we improved on our results from the previous year and exceeded the sector wide score in all 9 themes, which include the teaching on my course, learning opportunities, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, learning community, student voice and the student union.
