Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) has come top of the league table for student satisfaction in a national survey.

BSMS received an overall satisfaction rating from final-year students of 99 per cent in the National Student Survey (NSS).

The remarkable rating put BSMS in the top spot for undergraduate medical degrees.

BSMS said: “The quality of teaching was rated extremely highly, with 100 per cent of participants agreeing that the course is intellectually stimulating and that they have been provided with opportunities to apply what they have learnt.

“In addition, 98 per cent agreed that staff are good at explaining things and have made the subject interesting.”

BSMS director of undergraduate teaching and learning Juliet Wright said: “I am delighted with our excellent results in the 2017 National Student Survey.

“Our staff are committed to providing students with an outstanding education in medicine and the particularly high scores for teaching show we have been successful in achieving this.”

Dr Wright added: “Results of 100 per cent for the quality of the course and opportunities for students to apply what they have learnt show that we are clearly preparing our students well for their future careers in the NHS.”

Students felt strongly that BSMS provided a positive learning environment, with 97 per cent believing that they felt part of a community of staff and students and had the right opportunities to work with other students.

Access to course-specific resources was also very high at 99 per cent – and sufficient advice and guidance in relation to the course and opportunities to provide feedback both received 98 per cent.
