Subjects ranked in the top ten nationally for student satisfaction included nursing, philosophy and performing arts.

Essex also scored 89% satisfaction with teaching, 86% for management, 84% for personal development and 83% for academic support.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, Professor Aletta Norval, said: “Giving our students a learning experience that helps them to grow and develop is our highest priority. We are committed to an education, where students develop the skills they need for a fulfilling future. We are investing in new facilities including our £26million student centre and library extension, which open next year.”

Chantel Le Carpentier, president of the Students’ Union, added: “The university has made a genuine commitment to working in partnership with the Students’ Union to deliver the best experience and education for students. I am confident we are already seeing changes around campus to fulfil this commitment.”
