million+ welcomes universities' high student satisfaction rates

Commenting on the release of the National Student Survey and publication of the new Unistats website, Pam Tatlow, Chief Executive of the university think-tank million+ said:

“These high satisfaction rates across the university sector would be the envy of any organisation in the private sector and reflect how valued the university experience is for students.

“These surveys also confirm that modern universities - which offer opportunities to students from a wide range of backgrounds - provide courses leading to careers which are rewarded financially, but also add value to the private and public sectors and enrich our cultural life and creative industries."
