University of Highlands and Islands receives its highest ever student satisfaction result

The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) has received its highest ever rating from satisfied students in this year’s National Student Survey.

UHI includes a total of thirteen colleges and research institutions across the Highlands and Islands region of Scotland, including Orkney College UHI.

According to UHI, the survey places the university fifth in overall satisfaction in Scotland, with an increase of six per cent in overall satisfaction. This puts the institution two per cent above the Scottish average.

UHI has also performed above the Scottish sector in almost all measures and this high level of student satisfaction can be found across all areas of the partnership.

Dr Iain Morrison, dean of students, said: “This wonderful result has been achieved through cohesive, coordinated and collective efforts by many people across the partnership. Every single member of teaching, support and admin staff and our partners in the Highlands and Islands Students’ Association can have a positive impact on a student’s experience and we work hard at making the university even better every day.

“To have these efforts recognised in the most important national measure of student satisfaction is testament to the high quality of hard-working colleagues we have, committed to the support and learning of our students. Today our students have told us that the University of the Highlands and Islands is a great place to study.”
