The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has been ranked in the top three higher education institutions in the UK for the quality of its staff and lectures.
The accolade comes from the most recent Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, which ranked 111 institutions on key indicators related to:
- teaching quality
- the helpfulness and interest of staff
- structure of courses
- industry connections
- social life and accommodation
In the category of “high quality staff and lectures” the RVC received a score of 6.4 out of a maximum 6.5, just behind Oxford and Cambridge. The college was also joint third in the category of “helpful and interested staff“, level with Keele and again behind Oxford and Cambridge.
For overall score across all categories, the RVC was the second highest ranking London institution, just behind Imperial College. The poll is conducted by YouthSight and based on a student panel recruited via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). A total of 14,300 students took part.
Vice-principal of learning and student experience at the RVC, David Church, said: “We are particularly pleased the RVC’s long-term and unswerving commitment to providing the highest quality educational experience for all our students is reflected in the results of this survey.”
