The Liverpool John Moores University Journalism department has once again finished among the top 10 universities in England and Wales when it comes to student satisfaction.


The annual National Student Survey (NSS) measures how happy undergraduates are across a range of criteria, from staff enthusiasm to library services.


And in the 2011 survey, which was published this month,

JMU Journalism scored an impressive 10th place out of 38

English and Welsh institutions.


An overwhelming 96% of students agreed staff are

enthusiastic about what they’re teaching, with 93%

agreeing that staff are good at explaining things.


Overall, 83% were satisfied with the quality of their course.


Personal development was one area where the JMU

Journalism department scored particularly well.


Nine out of 10 students (91%) said they felt confident about tackling problems as a result of the course, and the same number felt their communication skills had improved.  


In addition, 85% said the course had helped them to present themselves with more confidence.


There was also a thumbs-up for the department’s facilities and technical support. Library services were judged good by 93%, while 89% agreed they had been able to access general IT resources when needed.


Head of Department, Professor Chris Frost said: “We work hard to give our students an excellent experience and prepare them for a career in the tough world of journalism and our high rating in the student survey shows we are successful."
