There was particularly strong feedback from students enrolled on Graduate Entry Medicine, who awarded the course 96% overall satisfaction, and students from Medicine and Dentistry who awarded 93% and 96% respectively, for ‘teaching and learning satisfaction; an increase in score from last year.

Commenting on the University’s NSS results, the Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir David Eastwood said:

“This has been another remarkable year for Birmingham. Not only were we named University of the Year for Graduate Employment by The Times and The Sunday Times but our focus on continuous improvement across all areas of university life, from teaching to employability skills and student welfare, has clearly been recognised by our students.

“We believe that providing a first-class experience for our students is an essential part of being a world class university and we are investing heavily in the future.”

These latest results build on the University’s impressive performance across all higher education league tables.
