Unistats – the official website for comparing UK higher education course data – has today revealed that 100 per cent of student respondents studying Fashion Marketing and Human Resource Management at Northampton Business School (NBS) at the University of Northampton have expressed that they are satisfied with their course.
This follows on from a 92 per cent overall satisfaction rate among NBS students, surpassing any previous University of Northampton high points on this critical national measure.
This student seal of approval further supports NBS’s nomination for the prestigious Times Higher Education award for Outstanding Business School 2013. It also reflects the University’s increased investment in the student experience, which has led to higher rates of student satisfaction, the employability of graduates and the creation of high quality learning, teaching and social facilities for all students and staff.
Dr Ian Brooks, Executive Dean of NBS commented: “I am delighted that a huge majority of our students are satisfied or very satisfied with their experience at the Business School. This reflects the excellent work of our staff, the significant focus on and investment in the student experience, as well as the enthusiasm and optimism of our students.”
Unistats is the official site that compares data and information on university and college courses from across the UK. The site draws together comparable information on those areas that students have identified as important in making decisions about what and where to study. The items that students thought were most useful have been included in a Key Information Set, which can be found on the Overview tab for each course.
The site draws on the following official data on higher education courses:
• Student satisfaction from the National Student Survey
• Student destinations on finishing their course from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey
• How the course is taught and study patterns
• How the course is assessed
• Course accreditation
• Course costs (such as tuition fees and accommodation)
