In the National Student Survey 2022, the University of St Andrews is number one in the UK for student academic experience.
The survey, published on 6 July 2022, also named St Andrews the UK’s top mainstream university, the fourteenth time in the past 16 years that the university has been at the highest ranking for student experience.
Of all final year students surveyed, more than 89% gave the University high marks for the quality of learning and teaching experience. The University also received a place in the top ten ranking for 22 subject areas.
The survey reflects students’ feelings regarding academic support, learning resources, teaching, management, assessment, personal development, and satisfaction.
Six Scottish universities have ranked among the UK’s top 20.
Vice-Principal Education (Proctor) Clare Peddie said: “We are delighted to rank top once again in the NSS. We value this positive feedback from our student community as it reflects the University’s commitment to the very highest standards of learning, teaching, and student experience.
“The results are a testament to the hard work of our academic and professional service staff during a challenging year to provide students with the highest quality support, innovative learning and contact with some of the best researchers in the world.
“We welcome feedback like this and will continue to listen to students and foster our positive relationship with them.”
President of the Students’ Association Juan Pablo Rodriguez said: “The brilliant results of this year’s NSS are a testament to the joint effort of the University’s staff and Students’ Association at looking after our student community during the process of transition between a world pandemic and our new reality.
“Our commitment to the student population is as strong as ever and we will be sure to continue working in unison to excel at offering the best student experience in the year to come.”
