Students have put Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) in third position in the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS) for medical schools.
BSMS achieved an overall satisfaction rate of 98%, with 97% of participants agreeing that the course is intellectually stimulating and 98% believing that they have been provided with opportunities to apply what they have learnt. In addition, 98% agreed that they had the right opportunities to provide feedback on the course.
Professor Malcolm Reed, Dean of BSMS, said: “The results are a fantastic reflection on the experience provided by all our staff and colleagues at BSMS. We continue to achieve high scores for the quality of our teaching and our course content, which is really pleasing. The fact that our students can apply what they have learnt bodes well for the future as they prepare for their careers in the NHS. I would also like to acknowledge our NHS colleagues and fantastic support staff at BSMS who work tirelessly to enhance our students’ experience."
Professor Juliet Wright, Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning at BSMS, added: “We are committed to providing our students with an outstanding education in medicine in order to give them the best preparedness for practice. Third place is an outstanding achievement for BSMS, and our challenge now is to take our students’ feedback into account and work hard with all parties to continue our success next year and beyond.”
