Students have voted the University of Portsmouth as offering inspiring experiences and activities across a range of areas in the Times Higher Education’s Student Experience Survey results for 2017, released today.
The University was placed 36th in the survey, which ranked universities in the UK for student experience – as decided by current students. The University was also the highest ranking of all University Alliance institutions.
Students rated their academic and societal experiences, University facilities and connections with industry connections particularly strong, with these areas ranking in the top 30 per cent for the sector.
Professor Graham Galbraith, Vice-Chancellor said: “It’s great to hear how much our students rate us and enjoy their time at Portsmouth. We are committed to providing students with the very best experience and these results reflect how highly regarded the University is across all areas of student life.”
The results were based on the responses of more than 15,000 undergraduates rating their university across 21 measures based on a seven-point rating from “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree”. The results were then broken down into seven composite groups made up of up to five of the 21 attributes that cover: academic experience, university facilities, societal experience, student welfare, accommodation, industry connections, and security.
