    There seems to be a number of schools missing from the list here including Brighton, Portsmouth and Plymouth.

    Any particular reason that other schools such as Plymouth, UWE and Portsmouth are not included on the list?

    Hi both,

    I'm still adding to the list - there's a lot of universities to get through!

  • Quote " Edinburgh University was voted worst for teaching, ahead of London Met, Westminster and the School of Oriental and African Studies."

    Sorry, that doesn't make any sense. If it's the worst, then it isn't ahead of anything.

  • Sheffield Hallam came equal top with Bath in the National Student Survey with 100%. Why is i missing from these figures?

  • Neither Glasgow Caledonian nor Napier teach architecture. It would be useful to know the extent of the study and the method of obtaining the information, and the method of comparing courses that are clearly in different subjects. This article is embarrassingly poor, likely to result in a low reader satisfaction survey outcome.

  • Any school that gets 100% in the National Student Survey must be dodgy. Like North Korea !

    The headline for the table states it is showing "Student satisfaction scores for architecture, building and planning", which is the category within which architecture courses sit.

    I don't understand what this article is about. What is "average rating?" average of what?.. can the table be arrange with best scoring schools at the top? it's very difficult to read.

    So the most smug students are also the best students? If only that were true.
