Why study at Kirklees College?
In the National Student Survey 2013, Kirklees College ranked number one in West Yorkshire for overall student satisfaction, alongside two other Higher Education Institutes (HEI), from a total of ten.
Other results demonstrated just how satisfied the higher education students are with their experience at the college and included the following:
- The teaching on my course (87%)
- Supportive academic staff (86%)
- Personal development opportunities (91%)
- Overall satisfaction (87%)
In 2012-13, Kirklees College has increased its overall satisfaction rating from students on HE programmes by 2% since 2011-12. The college is also 2% above National Benchmarks.
In the West Yorkshire region, Kirklees College also ranks number one, alongside two other Higher Education Institutes (HEI) providers out of a total of 10 HEI providers in the region.
The statistic rivals local universities, Leeds Met (81 per cent) and the University of Huddersfield (86 per cent), despite significantly lower tuition fees at £5,995.
Other further education colleges in West Yorkshire saw satisfaction levels at a lower level than Kirklees College with Calderdale College (79 per cent) and Bradford College (76 per cent).
We are delighted with these excellent National Student Survey results. Last year, the Quality Assurance Agency awarded the college their highest grading possible. This was exceptionally pleasing but, for me, the endorsement of our students is even more gratifying.
