UEL receives strong endorsement in Student Experience Survey 2017


UEL rises ten places in UK table after students give high marks for the quality of their university experience

The University of East London (UEL) has received a ringing endorsement from its students after rising ten places in the national Student Experience Survey league table to become the second-ranked modern university in London. 

The 2017 survey, carried out by the Times Higher Education Supplement, asked students across the UK to rate all aspects of their university experience – including academic teaching, facilities, extra-curricular activities, student welfare and accommodation.

UEL students delivered a vote of confidence in their institution by rating the University top among modern universities in London for the quality of staff and lectures, teaching in small groups, fairness of workload, libraries, accommodation, sports facilities, university facilities overall and in the category ‘I would recommend my university to a friend’.

UEL was also ranked second among the capital’s modern universities for overall academic experience, student welfare, security, well-structured courses and dealing with personal requirements.

Professor John Joughin, UEL Vice-Chancellor, said, “It is fantastic to receive such positive feedback from our students, which is testimony to the hard work of our academic and support staff. 

“To score so highly for overall academic experience is particularly satisfying and recognises our efforts in delivering high-quality degree courses that equip our students for graduate-level employment or further study.

“Last year UEL was rated the fifth most improved university in the UK for student satisfaction, rising 37 places in the national league table, and this latest survey provides further proof that we are heading in the right direction.”
