Birmingham Law School Shines in National Student Survey 2008

Posted on Monday 15th September 2008

Birmingham Law School performed exceptionally well in the latest National Student Survey, the results of which have just been released. Ninety-two percent of respondents said they were satisfied with the quality of their courses. Respondents were particularly impressed with the enthusiasm of staff, their ability to explain things clearly and to make material intellectually stimulating. They also praised the School’s library and IT resources and the way courses are organised and run.

The National Student Survey is carried out by Ipsos MORI and covers nearly all final year undergraduates studying for higher education qualifications in the United Kingdom. A threshold of 23 respondents and a 50 per cent response rate must be met before results are made available to the public. At Birmingham Law School, 139 of the 216 eligible students took part. The full results are available on the Unistats web-site.

The (then) Head of Birmingham Law School, Professor Anthony Arnull, said:

‘I am very grateful to all our students who took part in the National Student Survey this year. The results are a tribute to the effort devoted by my colleagues to meeting our students’ aspirations. We will do our best to improve our performance even further in the coming year.
