UCEN Manchester achieves highest ever score for teaching in national survey

Hundreds of UCEN Manchester students took part in an independent survey recently and marked the ‘teaching on my course’ at 87% - an increase of 6% on last year’s survey and the highest score ever achieved!

Staff were also particularly praised for making the subject engaging, which was rated at 90.5%, 10% above the national average.

The independent annual survey is one of the key indicators of how students rate their time at higher education institutes and was completed by more than 339,000 final-year students in the UK. This year, 86% of eligible UCEN Manchester students participated in the survey, 15% higher than the national participation rate. 

Michael Walsh, Deputy Principal and Dean, said: “I’m delighted with the response rate of students who took the time to credit the excellent teaching on their courses, and am pleased that it was recognised with such a high score – the highest that we have ever received and above the vast majority of local universities. It’s testament to the hard work and dedication of the UCEN Manchester curriculum staff and wider support teams.”

These results are nationally led and independent and therefore give prospective students reassurance when choosing where to study. I’m so proud of our teaching staff.
