The University of Bolton has topped charts in the Complete University Guide 2019, with first place for overall student satisfaction amongst the Greater Manchester institutions and joint 18th position within the 131 national universities’ league.
The university’s English and maths courses took first place in their respective UK subject leagues for student satisfaction, with creative writing and accountancy both in second place UK-wide. Within the Greater Manchester region, three subject areas took first place for their student satisfaction scores: accountancy, biological sciences and education.
In the broader North West catchment, six University of Bolton schools in the study appeared in the top five rankings for student satisfaction: art and design, civil engineering, construction and education. Nursing and psychology both took first place. The university itself took fourth place out of 14 universities in the region.
"The student satisfaction ranking of no less than 12 subject schools appearing in the top quartile of universities nationally is an accolade for our dedicated staff and lecturers," said Professor George E Holmes DL, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bolton. “It demonstrates that our commitment to a Teaching Intensive, Research Informed culture is working, assuring students of high teaching standards and experience that best readies them for employment opportunities.”
The Complete University Guide publishes its survey annually, drawing data from sources in the public domain including the National Student Survey 2017, the 2014 Research Excellence Framework and the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
