The College of Law and Criminology at Swansea University has achieved the top position for law in England and Wales in the 2015 National Student Survey (NSS).
98% of students on the Swansea LLB are satisfied with the course. Students rated all aspects of their experience highly, with 100% of students thinking that staff are effective teachers and 95% saying that the course is intellectually stimulating.
Ruth Costigan, the Director of Undergraduate Studies for Law said, ‘To be top of all law schools in England and Wales is a tribute to the talent and dedication of colleagues and students. We strive to deliver an outstanding legal education and it’s very pleasing to see the excellence of our student experience recognised yet again.’
Head of College, Professor Elwen Evans QC said, ‘These results are fabulous. I’m proud to be leading a College which is so successful and relevant. My appointment brings together the academic and the professional at an exciting time. It emphasises the importance of close links between students and practitioners: the kind of links that can make a real difference to the quality of students’ experience and to their employment prospects.’
