Accountancy Course Ranks Top For Student Satisfaction

The University of Lincoln’s accountancy degree course has come top in the UK’s largest student satisfaction survey for the third year running.

For this year’s National Student Survey (NSS), market research firm Ipsos MORI gathered opinions on courses from some 265,000 final-year undergraduates from 154 higher education institutions and 99 further education colleges across the UK.

The BA hons in Accountancy and Finance at Lincoln topped the poll of similar courses, while other programmes in the popular Lincoln Business School, such as Marketing also ranked in the top 10 per cent nationally.

Professor Scott Davidson, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “Our students enjoy their learning in a fantastic new building and have access to great industry insight, contacts and research, backed up with strong career guidance.”

“However, what is reflected most strongly in the NSS feedback is that staff at Lincoln really care about their students and are passionate about teaching their subjects.”

Universities Minister David Willetts said: “This survey shows that student satisfaction is high on average. This is welcome news. No wonder record numbers of young people at home and abroad wish to study at our world-class universities .”
