Wrexham Glyndwr University is celebrating 100% student satisfaction in a wide variety of subjects.

The University obtained the top figure for Applied Arts; Education and Childhood Studies; Health, Wellbeing and Community; Occupational Therapy, and Youth and Community Work.

The results were taken from the National Student Survey and refer to the 2015/16 academic year.

Computer Game Development (MComp) and Housing and Sustainable Communities Studies also achieved 100% over the combined years 2014/15 and 2015/16.

Across the board, up to 40 subject areas attained a score of 85% and above.

Overall, the institution increased student satisfaction by 5% points to 85%, and was ranked top in Wales for assessment and feedback, timetabling, building confidence and personal development.

Wrexham Glyndwr was also second in the country for advice on choices and study support, and saw a rise in satisfaction in communication and personal development.

Vice Chancellor, Professor Maria Hinfelaar, said the positive news comes at a busy time, as students prepare to begin and continue their studies in north east Wales.

“To see so many areas achieve 100% and above the national average is heartening and gives a positive message to prospective students and those joining us in the coming weeks,” said Professor Hinfelaar.

“The 5% points increase in overall satisfaction is very welcome news and shows how hard staff are working to further improve the student experience.

“I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and focus on ensuring the student is at the heart of everything we do here at Wrexham Glyndwr University.”
