STUDENTS at Brighton and Sussex Medical School are among the most satisfied in the country.
The school, run jointly by the universities of Sussex and Brighton, is the top ranked medical school in the National Student Survey.
The annual poll questioned about 304,000 final-year students at universities and further education colleges across the UK.
They were asked about every aspect of their experience, including teaching, assessment and support and resources.
The medical school, which is ten years old this year, had an overall satisfaction rating of 95%. The survey revealed 89% of students at the University of Sussex were happy with their experience there, while the University of Brighton was awarded 86%.
Medical school director of under- graduate education, Inam Haq, said: “This reflects the enthusiasm and commitment of all our teachers and administrative staff to deliver consistently top-quality medical education.
“I am particularly pleased with the increase in satisfaction with assessment and feedback, demonstrating how we have worked effectively in partnership with our students to help them gain a better understanding of their educational and professional development needs.”
University of Brighton vice-chancellor Julian Crampton said: “The results are very encouraging and show that the vast majority of students were happy and that they valued the quality and relevance of courses.”
University of Sussex pro-vice-chancellor Clare Mackie said: “It is very pleasing Sussex students are continuing to enjoy their time with us and rate their university experience so highly.”
