Top-20 score for colleges

05 October 2012

FIVE church-based universities and university colleges in the Cathedrals Group are among the 20 top scorers for student satisfaction in the 2012 National Student Survey of 122 higher-education institutions.

Newman University College, Birmingham, was ninth; Winchester University was joint tenth; Chester University and Trinity University College, Leeds, were joint 12th; and St Mary's University College, Twickenham, was joint 15th.

The Vice-Chancellor of Winchester, Professor Joy Carter, who chairs the Cathedrals Group, said that one of the keys to its success was the attention given to good staff-student relationships in the Group, praised in last year's report Distinctiveness and Identity in a Challenging HE Environment, by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education ( News, 11 November 2011).
