"Since joining the University in 2010 I have enjoyed working with a dedicated staff team that understand that there are no short cuts to excellent teaching. The way students are taught at Chichester allows them to maximise their academic and practical potential." - Dr Laszlo Nemeth, Senior Lecturer and former England Basketball coach

The University of Chichester consistently scores highly in the National Student Survey, meaning that graduates from Chichester were highly satisfied with their course. The following are direct quotes from our students:

"Dedicated lecturers, well planned lessons."  "I really enjoyed having a specific academic advisor."  "I love the course, and I have recommended it to many others!"  "I’m so happy I picked this course, I can’t imagine doing anything else."

Our Chief External Examiners most recent report comments. "The students I observed on school placement and spoke to on my visit were a credit to the University.  They were passionate and enthusiastic about their programme and the amount of care and support they had received from the staff team. The school mentors were also incredibly complimentary about the high quality of students that Chichester continues to produce.  It is heartening to see so many happy past students teaching in the schools that I visit."  Barbara Walsh - Chief External Examiner
