Student satisfaction at record high

The BA Journalism degree at Sheffield Hallam University has reached a staggering 93 per cent in the latest National Student Survey.

Satisfaction has increased year-on-year since the course began and reached 74 per cent in 2010/11 before climbing a further 15 per cent in 2011/12. However the latest figures are a record high for the course and reflect the hard work of all the staff. More than 70 students took part in the survey meaning the results represent almost the entire cohort.

The journalism team scored particularly well in the following categories:

  • Staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching (96%)
  • Staff are good at explaining things (93%)
  • I have been able to contact staff when I needed to (93%)
  • Staff have made the subject interesting (92%)

Course leader Dr Lily Canter said: “The results are excellent and highlight the hard work and enthusiasm of all the staff. We are delighted that the course continues to thrive and provide a stimulating environment for our students. However we cannot rest of our laurels and there are always areas we can improve on. In the coming year we hope to improve satisfaction even further.”
