The University of Chichester named UK’s 25th-best university in National Student Survey 2021

According to the results from the National Student Survey (NSS) 2021, The University of Chichester has climbed 26 places from last year’s survey to rank UK's top 25 based on its high satisfaction rates in 2021. Psychology, teacher training, and early childhood studies at the University also performed well across the board and were rated among the top five in the UK for overall satisfaction.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane Longmore said the results reflected the staff's commitment to students during the school's most challenging periods in their 182-yearhistory. She added that receiving high scores from the students off the back of an extremely demanding year highlights the dedication to creating an inclusive community of care that leaves no one behind.

In addition, becoming a top-25 UK university is a powerful statement for the University. She concluded that to rise 26 places shows that students value the community that supported them throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Student Union president Gemma Hopwood said she was lucky enough to experience a high-quality education during the global pandemic. She added that the University ensured students were on campus at every opportunity and it showed in the results achieved. "I am ecstatic, and I hope we maintain this progress and student satisfaction in the coming year," she added.
