HIGHER EDUCATION COURSES GET THUMBS-UP FROM STUDENTS

Higher education qualifications at City of Wolverhampton College have been given the thumbs-up by students in a national survey.

Results from the 2016 National Student Survey show that 95% of the College’s higher education students are satisfied with the quality of their course against a benchmark of 86%.

In addition, 98% think their courses are intellectually stimulating and 95% said that staff are enthusiastic about what they teach.

Louise Fall, Quality Improvement Director at the College, said: “It’s great news that our higher education students have given us such fantastic feedback in the national survey and that the number satisfied is significantly above the benchmark.

“Studying for higher education qualifications at college is a more affordable option than going to university and these results demonstrate that, by choosing this route, our students will benefit from the same standard of education and teaching but at a much lower cost.”

The College offers full-time and part-time university-level higher education programmes, including Higher National Certificates (HNC), Higher National Diplomas (HND) and foundation degrees, in a wide range of subjects – for a full list of qualifications on offer go to  http://www.wolvcoll.ac.uk/type/higher-education or call 01902 836000.
