“People have a wide variety of experiences at university, and this latest National Student Survey tells a broadly positive story about our universities. However, it also reflects real and persistent concerns over the feedback given on students’ work, and I hope the sector will address that.

“I want to ensure prospective students have comprehensive, up-to-date and comparable information about what is on offer. Even in tough times, our universities should be incentivised to improve the student experience and deliver a world-class education. I am committed to improving the range and accessibility of the information available, and will be exploring ways of achieving this in the coming months.”
