BSMS received a 95% rating for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey of final year students, the highest score for a single higher education institution in the UK.
The quality of BSMS teaching also received 95% student satisfaction. High scores were received for staff explaining the subject to students (97%), showing enthusiasm for what they are teaching (94%), and ensuring the course was intellectually stimulating (99%). Satisfaction with learning resources was also rated highly at 96%, with library resources registering a full 100%.
With 92% of BSMS students believing the course had significantly contributed to their personal development, 94% stated that they have improved communications skills and can now present themselves with confidence - essential skills for a career in medicine.
Dr Inam Haq, Director of Undergraduate Education, says:
“We are very pleased to have student satisfaction so high again this year. This is a huge credit to all our teachers at BSMS, parent universities and the local healthcare community who are so committed to delivering a high quality teaching experience for our students. The figures also reflect the way in which BSMS works with our students, individually and via the student representative system. All of this comes together to produce and deliver a medical curriculum that will equip our students to become first-class doctors to meet all the challenges of the 21st century both nationally and internationally”.
