National Student Survey success

Posted on August 13, 2014 by

The 2014 National Student Survey results have seen a huge surge in popularity for LEL’s courses!

Two of our BA programmes – Linguistics, and Linguistics and Sociology – managed to achieve the elusive 100% student satisfaction rate, with English Language and Screen Studies also in the 90s. Linguistics in particular has jumped from 61% in 2013 to 100% this year, a rise of 39 percentage points.

Another programme which has soared up the charts by 39 percentage points is English Language, which has risen from 45% to 84% satisfaction, a result which has been referred to internally as “almost incredible”.

Manchet thinks the results are perfectly credible. An influx of new staff over the last few years has led to an upsurge of enthusiasm as well as vastly-improved student-staff ratios, and it’s hard to doubt now that LEL is a great place for undergraduate study. Special mention must go to Yuni Kim, who as Senior Academic Advisor and Student-Staff Liaison Officer has helped to train colleagues in advising their students and to ensure that LEL undergraduates have plenty of opportunities for real involvement – from student-led research, to lunchtime mingling sessions, to public lectures, to volunteering roles, to peer mentoring, to parties.

Well done to Yuni, and to all involved!
