Leeds reaches new heights


90% of Leeds students rate their course as intellectually stimulating, according to the 2012 National Student Survey. Leeds' student union was ranked as one of the country's best.

Leeds' scores improved in all seven categories of the Survey, overall satisfaction rose to 87%, with the greatest increase in assessment and feedback (up 4 percentage points) and the scores for academic support and personal development both up 3 percentage points.

The score of 90% for satisfaction with the students’ union, Leeds University Union, is significantly ahead of the 66% sector average and is the second highest in the Russell Group. Our library resources are ranked joint fifth in the Russell Group and our IT facilities joint sixth.

The continued improvements in Leeds' results follow ongoing investment to ensure we provide students with an inspirational learning environment. The score for the percentage of students satifised with teaching on their course rose from 88% to 90%. The quality and innovation in teaching at Leeds has also been recognised through the award of 16 National Teaching Fellowships - more than any other university in the country.

Leeds University Union, has long been known as one of the country's finest student unions and is the only one in the country to have won  two gold standard awards for the Students’ Union Evaluation Initiative.
