Record year for BU with NSS results


Student satisfaction at Bournemouth University in the National Student Survey (NSS) has reached its highest level since the survey started in 2005.

Our overall satisfaction rose to 80 per cent – an improvement of 1 per cent on the previous year.

Our overall results showed improvements in all areas, including organisation and management, and academic support and teaching, except personal development which remained constant.

Satisfaction levels in learning resources showed a significant improvement of 6 per cent to 83 per cent.

School successes included overall satisfaction improvements for Tourism, Media, DEC and Applied Sciences.

Tim McIntyre-Bhatty, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of BU, commented: “We are very pleased that we are continuing to see an overall rise in levels of student satisfaction at BU to this record level.

“However, the sector average also improved 1 per cent to 86 per cent, so we appreciate that there is still work to be done and that is why we are committed to improving the whole student experience at BU.

“This includes investment of £10.5 million in the student centre which will become the new home of the Students’ Union (SUBU).”
