Where does your uni rank in the LLoyds Satisfaction Survey?By Sj.Cliff
University is your new life for the next three years, so important that you’re satisfied with it.
Lloyds Bank took a survey across 89 UK universities to measure the quality of life of the students that study there. They looked at course quality, employment and earnings potential, accommodation cost, sports facilities, social life and crime to generate a score and rank the unis.
This year’s winner was last year’s second place, Loughborough University.
The improvements are reflected in the high scores Loughborough received in the following categories:
Nine out of ten students (89%) are satisfied with their course, higher than the national average (86%)
94% of final year graduates find employment (or carry on studying), with an annual full time median salary of £22,000
Loughborough has some of the best sporting facilities amongst British universities all within one campus
Loughborough students rate their social life as one of the best in Britain, with Leicester and Nottingham on their doorstep
Though with that, they have some of the highest accommodation costs in the country.
Nitesh Patel, economist at Lloyds Bank, comments:
“Loughborough has raced to the top of the Lloyds Bank Quality of Student Life Survey. The University scored consistently high scores across most indicators. Loughborough students are happy with the quality of their course, which provides them with excellent employment prospects, while also benefitting from a strong social life. This has helped them clinch the top spot as students of Loughborough enjoy the best quality of life amongst UK universities for 2014.”
