University description (as per official university website)
According to the results of the 2007 National Student Survey, 89% of final-year full-time undergraduates at Kent are overwhelmingly satisfied with the quality of their courses, a figure significantly higher than the average of other universities. Universities also ranked in the top ten include Oxford, St Andrews, Exeter and Loughborough.
This year’s survey drew on the experiences of more final-year students than ever before – giving prospective undergraduates a wealth of first-hand guidance to help them to choose their future course.
Since its launch three years ago, the NSS has become a vital tool for anyone considering going to university, offering detailed information which had never before been available. In the first year of the survey, students ranked Kent top university in the South East, a position firmly reinforced in 2006.
"This is excellent news and builds on the already good results of the previous National Student Surveys in which students consistently ranked us the top university in the south east. We are pleased to see our students feel they have made the right choice in coming to Kent and that the quality of our courses is reflected in their feedback."
