Cambridge freshers of 2011 will be pleased to know they’re joining one of the happiest universities in the country.

A new survey of 265,000 final-year students across the UK found Cambridge students have an outstanding 94% overall satisfaction rate.

Cambridge came second only to Brighton and Sussex Medical School, making it the highest rated all-subject university in terms of student satisfaction.

Nothing like a summer time punt to keep you happy!

The Other Place failed to make the mark, coming in at a measly joint third along with others such as the private Buckingham University and the Open University.

Students studying at 154 universities and 99 further education colleges were asked questions on every aspect of their student experience, from teaching and resources to support. The survey was published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

And not only is Cambridge the happiest University, we also came top in the QS World University Rankings last year, a table assembled purely on universities’ academic credentials.

New freshers can look forward to discovering the reasons behind these excellent results as soon as they arrive. Not only is Cambridge one of the finest learning environments in the world – nay, the universe – it also has a mind-boggling selection of extracurricular attractions, including: sport, music, theatre, drinking and some of the finest undergraduate journalism in the UK. Whether you’re a yearning thesp, a budding boatie or just love the thought of straight-arming a VK in Cindies on a Tuesday night, Cambridge caters for all tastes.

We didn’t need to be told, but yet another study has proved that Cambridge is simply the place to be. And it’s obviously better than Oxford.

If you’re coming to Cambridge in October and fancy writing for The Tab, email [email protected] – no experience necessary.
