LJMU flying high in rankings for student satisfaction

LJMU has leapt up a host of rankings tables for student satisfaction.

Following the publication of the National Student Survey (NSS) 2022 results last week, analysis of the data reveals how positively LJMU compares with other universities.

The key comparisons are:

  • For overall student satisfaction, LJMU has jumped from 77th out of 123 institutions in 2021 to 39th this year
  • LJMU is ranked top for overall satisfaction in our peer group (regional competitors and institutions with a similar profile to LJMU)
  • We are now ranked second out of all North West institutions for overall student satisfaction

Organisation and management is LJMU’s best ranking category in NSS 2022: its score of 73.87% places us first among our peer group and 21st in the overall league table of institutions.

There was also a significant improvement in the rankings for Teaching on my course, which has climbed 32 places to 70th among all institutions.

Student comments about their programmes have been provided to schools and faculties to allow more localised analysis of the results. We will be presenting an overall institutional analysis of comments later in the year.

Professor Phil Vickerman, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience, said: “Our NSS rankings for student satisfaction are extremely positive and heartening and I’m delighted to see us rated so highly in comparison with other institutions.

“Such rankings can play a big part in helping prospective students decide where to study and our high placing in the tables clearly demonstrates to them our commitment to providing an outstanding student experience.

“Thank you once again to all LJMU staff for the part you have played in this fantastic achievement and your ongoing dedication to supporting our students.”
