The survey has been conducted annually since 2005 and gathers opinions, mainly from final year undergraduates, on the quality of their courses.

A spokesperson for Universities Scotland said, “Students have endorsed Scotland’s universities as the best place to pursue a higher education in the UK, with overall satisfaction reaching a three-year high at 87%. For new students starting their courses in September, and for prospective students looking to apply for entry in 2015, this is a big vote of confidence from their peers already studying in Scottish institutions.

Looking at the detail of survey, Scotland’s universities recorded improved or equal satisfaction from students in 21 out of 22 measures this year, including on level of feedback, teaching, academic support, learning resources and personal development. The survey results reflect institutions’ commitment to continuous self-improvement as they look to provide world class higher education and the best possible student experience. As well as being the best place to study in the UK, official figures published earlier this summer show Scottish universities are producing the UK’s most employable graduates with the best rates of positive destinations of work or further study.”
