For the first time, final year undergraduates at Manchester Met who responded to the survey are the most satisfied in Greater Manchester, ahead of the University of Salford and University of Manchester.
Lewis Bartlett, The Union’s President said: “This is an amazing achievement and the result is a real testament to our fantastic staff, students and volunteers.
“We’ve worked really hard since 2012 to improve the student experience at Manchester Met and The Union. We’ve worked on representation, services and opportunities, as well as moving to a brand new home in the heart of the campus.
“The overall NSS results will help shape our representation work, helping us identify where we can work with the University to make the academic experience even better for students.”
The annual independent survey gives final year undergraduates the chance to have their say on what they liked and didn’t like about their time at university – find out more about NSS.
Over 4,800 final year students at Manchester Met completed the survey this year, which compares student satisfaction across all Higher Education institutions in the UK.
The Union has moved 56 places since question 23 was introduced in 2012 to measure student satisfaction with their students’ union. This jump to the top 20 out of 136 unions – from 62% to 78% overall satisfaction from students who responded – is the biggest for any modern university union.
