Date: 12 August 2015

London Metropolitan University has recorded its highest ever National Student Survey (NSS) score, jumping 3% on last year.

The University scored 79%* in the survey and jumped six places in the national NSS rankings. London Met has continued to improve in the NSS, with students' overall satisfaction rising 12% in six years.

Several courses also scored 100% overall satisfaction in the NSS, with Banking and Finance, Forensic Science, Law (with International Relations) and Health and Social Care all receiving top marks. Tourism and Travel Management and Music Industry and Events Management also scored 100%.

The news comes just weeks after London Met received its highest ever graduate employment score, rising nine places in the Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey – the biggest rise of any university in the country.

Professor John Raftery, Vice Chancellor of London Met, said: “We’re delighted that London Met has increased its student satisfaction score for the second year running. This is a reflection of the hard work of staff and the changes we have made as an institution to ensure our students enjoy and benefit from their time with us.

“Our record increase in graduate employment and now the NSS shows that London Met is on the up, and we intend to build on this. Our new Strategic Plan has even more initiatives to boost both the employability and satisfaction of our students.”
