For the fourth year running St Helens College has received top marks for student satisfaction.

The National Student Survey (NSS) allows final year students studying for a degree to voice their opinion by providing feedback - relating to six aspects of student experience.

The results from 2014 revealed a four per cent increase for St Helens College in overall satisfaction compared to 2013 - increasing to 92 per cent - an impressive 11 per cent above the national average.

There were also increases in the level of satisfaction ranging from issues such as teaching to each student’s personal development.

Julia Callaghan, St Helens College’s director of customer relations and marketing, said: “St Helens College welcomes the latest set of results from the NSS highlighting that our students are amongst the happiest and most satisfied with their degree courses in the country.

“The college prides itself on providing a first-class student experience and customer service by ensuring a high standard of teaching, academic support and learning resources. We take our 
students’ feedback very seriously.

“If you study for a degree at St Helens College, the fees are lower than most universities and students benefit from smaller class sizes. Our results are outstanding with almost one in three students achieving a first-class BA honours degree in 2014.”
