Student satisfaction at Nottingham Trent University has risen for the third year running to reach its highest ever point, according to the National Student Survey (NSS) 2014.

Once again placing Nottingham Trent University above the national average, the overall satisfaction level is now 87%, taking the University 11 places up the national league. This is one of the largest leaps of any university in the UK.

Scores at Nottingham Trent University increased in every single aspect of the survey, and the University is now sector-leading in satisfaction with assessment and feedback on students' work, one of the most important factors to them as they pursue their studies.

Students studying Teacher Training and Civil Engineering at Nottingham Trent University are the most satisfied in the country, with both of these highly competitive courses taking the top spot in their respective fields. In addition, seven other subject areas are in the top ten nationally. A number of courses achieved the maximum 100% satisfaction rating.

At the same time, Nottingham Trent Students' Union (NTSU) is celebrating an outstanding 81% satisfaction score, an 11% increase on last year, and in comparison to a sector average of 67%. The impressive rise comes as NTSU wins Officer Team of the Year at the National Union of Students' Awards 2014 for their work leading a complete redevelopment of the Students' Union building which now boasts three storeys of social and leisure space including sports facilities and a music venue.

Nottingham Trent University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, said: "This year's results show that this University is continuing to set the pace in improving those aspects of the students' experience that matter most to them. This success is down to the expertise and commitment of our staff who have the quality of our teaching as their priority."
