Falmouth University has climbed seven places to rank sixth in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017.

The results come from a survey in which 25,000 students ranked their universities on 21 different measures.

These 21 measures fit into seven groups: academic experience, university facilities, societal experience, student welfare, accommodation, industry connections and security.

Falmouth placed as the highest university on the list in the South West and ranked as joint first for library provisions and opening hours.

High scores for the university were also shown in student welfare where Falmouth ranked 3rd and ranked in the top 10 for student lecturer relationships.

However, despite these great results many students see ways the university could improve. Many students were quick to point out the escalating growth of student population against the size of the university.

Others pointed out the inequalities in the universities societies and budgeting, pointing out groups that were being underfunded.

Falmouth finished one place ahead of the world famous Oxford University for student satisfaction; though the UK’s oldest university is rated number one when it comes to high-quality teaching staff and interesting lectures.

This is the first year that Falmouth has made it into the top 10 universities in the survey and it is expected to rise into the top 5 in the 2018 edition.
