Regent’s University London has had a fourth consecutive impressive year in the National Student Survey (NSS), with high results recorded for four programmes.
BA (Hons) Liberal Studies received 87 per cent overall satisfaction (an increase of 12 per cent on last year), BA (Hons) Acting & World Theatre received 83.3 per cent overall satisfaction, BA (Hons) Global Management received 80.2 per cent overall satisfaction (an increase of 8.5 per cent on last year), and BSc Psychology received 91 per cent overall satisfaction – an increase of 7 per cent on last year’s results, as well as 10 per cent above the OfS Benchmark and well above sector average.
Institutionally, Regent’s also performed well, recording 81.3 per cent overall satisfaction, just above the OfS benchmark of 80.5 per cent. We saw increases in Student Voice, Learning and Community and Assessment and Feedback, as well as Organisation and Management, which increased by just under 4 per cent.
Professor Geoff Smith, Vice-Chancellor and CEO, said: ‘In what has been a very challenging year, these results are the deserved culmination of incredibly hard work, and something we should be very proud of. I’m confident our students have a brilliant online Autumn 2020 Term to look forward to.’
Dr Marina Rachitskiy, Interim Head of Programmes for Psychology, said: 'We are extremely proud to be so positively recognised by our students and we will strive to achieve even higher, just as we encourage and support our students to reach higher.’
Professor Lawrence Phillips, Interim Assistant Dean and Head of Regent's School of Liberal Studies, said: ‘I am immensely proud of Regent’s Liberal Studies programme which goes from strength to strength. As one of the UK’s most innovative, successful and flexible liberal arts programmes, this NSS result confirms its high quality and excellent student experience… as voted by our students!
‘BA (Hons) Liberal Studies is truly a collaborative programme and its success is a testament to the commitment of our students and tutors amidst the unique, intensely international environment that Regent’s University London fosters.’
