Why do London uni's have terrible student experience?


Duncan

The Times Higher Education Supplement has surveyed tens of thousands of students about their experience at the UK's 113 major universities. I've posted an image here to show the bottom 25: https://twitter.com/DuncanChapple/status/977571246434082821 Interestingly, most of them are in London although only a minority of the UK's universities are there. The weakest schools include both colleges in the highly-respected University of London (LSE, City, Goldsmiths), traditional universities (Brunel), former polytechnics (Greenwich, Middlesex, Kingston, London Met, South Bank, West London, Westminster) and newer universities (Roehampton, UAL).

PS Do people think that students going to London perhaps have higher expectations?

Is there any breakdown to see more data? Are they unhappy about the teaching, the experience, the cost, the outcomes, the network, the cohort?

Where did you get this report? What factors this survey considered to rank universities? I would like to know the more information.

As stated, it's from the Times Higher Education magazine. I've put a picture of the bottom half of the ranking at https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DZN-OxwXkAEgfok.jpg:large You'll see the weakest factors seem to be the ones with the highest weights, in the purple section numbered "2". These are factors which relate to students' academic experience.

From what I can tell they surveyed undergrads on a number of factors, including safety, student welfare, accommodation, social life, facilities, industry connections, and overall academic experience.
