Edinburgh ranked the worst uni for student satisfaction in the UK

National Student Survey figures have been released today


Edinburgh has been ranked the worst for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey released today.

With a score of 80 per cent, Edinburgh ranked bottom whereas St Andrews came top scoring 94 per cent. Glasgow University also ranked fairly highly with 89 per cent.

This year’s result shows a drop in student satisfaction, with Edinburgh scoring 84 per cent in the 2015 NSS.

Despite being ranked as the fifth best university in the UK earlier this month, Edinburgh was also recently revealed to be the most expensive city for students in the UK, according to The Student Living Index conducted by Natwest. Being notorious for expensive rent, travel and nights out – the EUSA even raised the price of VKs and snakebites.

Edinburgh has also been the subject of national media coverage with Imogen Wilson, EUSA Vice President for Academic Affairs, nearly being kicked out of a student council debate (on whether EUSA should back the BDS Israel movement) for raising her hand and shaking her head.

Other scandal includes yesterday’s revelation that an elected NUS delegate from Edinburgh called a Jewish man a “subhuman rat” in a Facebook post.
