Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – UK


Also this year, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying at a different university. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.

Many students that went to study in the UK have shared their experience. A total of 986 students left a review of their experience in the UK, with an overall satisfaction grade of 9.1, ranking 5th in this year’s award session! 152 different schools have been reviewed, of which 7 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.

Unlike university rankings, Studyportals’ International Student Satisfaction Awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We created three award categories to distinguish between levels of satisfaction:

  • Award for Very Good International Student Satisfaction: at least 8.0 out of 10
  • Award for Excellent International Student Satisfaction: between 9.0 and 9.4 out of 10
  • Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction: at least 9.5 out of 10

7 UK universities received an award:

The University of Edinburgh 23 9+ Excellent
The University of Manchester 29 9+ Excellent
University of Leeds 22 9+ Excellent
University of Liverpool 27 9+ Excellent
University of Portsmouth 21 9+ Excellent
University of Sheffield 20 9+ Excellent
University of Strathclyde 31 8+ Very good

What international students said about studying in the UK:

The native people of UK are warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. Before coming here I had heard that UK is the only country in the world where the intellectual level rises with age and I have found here some of the best teachers of my life.
