QUB comes out top for student satisfaction

Survey success for Northern Irish university

Final year dental students at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) have rated their course as one of the best in the UK.

The National Student Survey (NSS), conducted annually by Ipsos Mori, asks final year students to rate their satisfaction with their course in seven different categories. QUB was ranked first in the UK for teaching as well as assessment and feedback.

Within QUB itself, the dental school held top position for overall satisfaction and it also came out top in the categories of teaching, assessment and feedback and academic support, coming a close second in the remaining three.

A spokesman for QUB said: "The rankings are a reflection on the hard work and dedication of all staff involved in the dental programme and the support provided by the University.

"Thanks should also go to the dental students who completed the survey and gave support and endorsement to the learning experience they acquired at the QUB Dental School."
