Satisfaction with the Students' Union on the increase

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

Results from the National Student Survey, released today, show that overall satisfaction with the Students’ Union and many of the areas we’re involved in has increased.

Final year undergraduates responded to the survey earlier in the year which covers a number of areas of their experience at Sussex.

72% of respondents agreed that they were satisfied with the Students' Union at Sussex. This is up from 66% from last year and places us in the top 25% of students’ unions.

Other notable results include increases in satisfaction with social opportunities, opportunities to interact socially with other students, the range of clubs and societies on offer.

We were particularly pleased to see an increase in the number of students satisfied with the range of entertainment and social events on offer which increased from 66% to 72% pushing us further above the national average.

Some results in academic areas are particularly impressive, notably satisfaction with lecturers and other academic staff. We also noted areas that need improvements and look forward to working in these areas with the University over the coming year.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff, volunteers, officers and students who make the Students' Union successful. 

Abraham Baldry, Students’ Union President, said:

I am delighted that more students have recognised the positive impact that the Students' Union has on their time at Sussex.

We've been working hard to involve a wider range of students in what we offer and have been expanding our events programme to include a diverse variety of activities. 

We're always interested in what students think and the National Student Survey is just one of the ways we gather feedback from students.”
