The Open University (OU) has again been rated the top university in Northern Ireland for student satisfaction in the latest National Student Survey (NSS). This makes it the fifteenth year in a row that the OU has topped the university student satisfaction table in Northern Ireland.
Over 3,700 students are currently studying with the OU in Northern Ireland on a wide spectrum of courses, ranging from nursing to engineering. Most Open University students study part-time, are in work and are an average age of 30.
National Director of The Open University, John D’Arcy commented on this success: “This result is the best endorsement we could get from our students, especially in our 50th anniversary year where we celebrate opening up education to all. Open University students are often balancing their studies around work and caring commitments in their busy lives so ensuring they receive high quality, flexible, is essential to ensuring they achieve their qualifications.”
Our team in Belfast has helped tens of thousands of people in Northern Ireland fulfil their educational potential and progress into successful careers, and we will continue to do so.
