A new nationwide survey recently revealed that students at one of the University of Wales’s Alliance Institutions are overwhelmingly happy with the quality of their university experience.
The University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) leapt up the table of how universities were ranked by students in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2010 and is the top new university in Wales when it comes to student satisfaction.
The annual survey questions students from every university in the UK, garnering feedback in areas such as teaching; assessment and feedback; academic support; organisation and management; learning resources and personal development.
UWIC’s strong performance this year saw the university having the fastest rate of growth in Wales against overall satisfaction scores; a reflection of its commitment to offering the best student experience possible.
Claire-Louise Rafferty, President of UWIC’s Student Union, said:
“The excellent NSS results are a reflection of the university and the Students Union's commitment to providing our students with the highest levels of academic and student experience. The support and constructive relationship we have with the individual Academic Schools and the university senior management has ensured that our representation structures, along with the work of our School Representatives, have contributed in achieving these results."
The University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) is part of the University of Wales Alliance which includes the University of Wales; Glyndwr University; Swansea Metropolitan University; University of Wales Newport and the University of Wales Trinity St David. The University of Wales Alliance aims to enrich and enhance Higher Education in Wales.
