Teesside University is the best university in the country for nursing courses, based on student satisfaction levels.

Results from the National Student Survey (NSS) shows that 97% of nursing students are satisfied with the overall level of their course at Teesside.

The annual NSS gives undergraduates the chance to rate their university and subject across a whole range of areas including teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support and personal development.

Across the 55 universities in England offering nursing courses, the average score for student satisfaction for nursing programmes was 85% - with Teesside’s 97% the highest score in the country.

Marion Grieves, Dean of the School of Health & Social Care, said: 'We are delighted that Nursing at Teesside University achieved such positive feedback and placed us among the very best in the country for student satisfaction.

'Our courses are designed in conjunction with health care providers, as well as users and carers, to ensure they meet the needs of the profession.

An outstanding feature of our courses is the successful collaboration with NHS, primary care trusts and social services, giving our students hands-on, practical experience and skills which are in great demand from potential employers.

'They prepare students for work in the NHS, or independent and voluntary sector, in a range of hospital and community settings. Students also benefit from the excellent links we have with colleagues working in health and social care throughout the region.
