The latest National Student Survey (NSS) confirms the University of West London (UWL) as the best modern university in London recording 85% for overall student satisfaction*
The high quality education at UWL was recognised with students ranking the University as number one in London in the core areas of teaching, learning opportunities, assessment and feedback, academic support and learning community. Whilst at subject level, Accounting, Applied Sound Engineering, Civil Engineering, Law, Music, Nursing and Psychology have all been recognised as the best in the capital.
It was not only the University’s courses that achieved outstanding results, UWL’s Students’ Union (UWLSU) was also ranked by students as the best Union in the UK, while UWL is also number one in the UK for student voice.
UWL Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter John, said: ‘This outstanding performance is excellent news for the University and consolidates our reputation as a provider of high quality, career-focused education which has a transformative effect upon students’ lives. We intend to build upon this success and become the best contemporary university in the UK, by placing students at the heart of everything we do and focusing upon delivering the very best experience through investment in infrastructure, academic staff and curriculum.’
UWLSU President Dave Titley, said: ‘It is fantastic that UWL has again been recognised by students as one of the very best modern universities around. We will continue to build an outstanding Students’ Union at the University of West London in the year ahead.’
These NSS results are just the latest outstanding achievement by UWL. In recent months, the University has been named London’s top modern university by the Guardian University Guide, achieved the biggest rises in three nationally significant league tables for the higher education sector and gained a Silver Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
