Sheffield students’ union honoured again

Have your say

SHEFFIELD University Students’ Union has won yet another accolade - claiming top spot in the National Student Survey after being named best union in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for the last four years.

The university itself was ranked fourth of any in the prestigious Russell Group for students’ overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey, with a score of 90 per cent.

Sheffield University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Keith Burnett, said: “It’s wonderful to know that our students continue to be amongst the most satisfied in the country and that the students’ union, which is currently undergoing a £20 million refurbishment to further improve facilities, has been rated the best”

In the survey, some 89 per cent of students also said they were happy with the quality of teaching on their courses, as well as the learning resources available to them.

The National Student Survey results have been released just after Sheffield University was placed 66th out of more than 2,500 institutions across the world in the QS World University Rankings.

Abdi Suleiman, president of the students’ union, said: “Our union stands out from all the others because it is so diverse in what it offers. I am very proud that the union is continually winning awards.”
