The results were from the national annual survey was carried out to assess the level of teaching, resources, and equipment.

The National Student Survey (NSS) preliminary results revealed that the university was number one, not just in one category, but in all ‘taught’ categories.

He said: “We are delighted that in the only official Government survey of university performance we have retained our position as the number one university in Greater Manchester for students’ satisfaction with teaching.

“In part due to our sector leading on-campus measures during the pandemic, we have been able to provide the best possible learning experience for our students.”

Professor Holmes added: “Student satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do.

"Our students and staff have had to work so hard over the past two years in unprecedented circumstances during the pandemic and so it makes being placed first in Greater Manchester an even more significant achievement.

“We continue to be focused on making our students feel welcome, valued and part of a friendly learning atmosphere.”
