THE University of Law, which has a base in Bishopthorpe Road in York, has topped the National Student Survey.

The institution's students voted it among the best in the country with a student satisfaction of 92 percent - the same score as Hull and York Medical School.

The survey included 23 questions covering teaching, academic support, library and personal development and ULaw achieved particularly high accolades for the quality of teaching, library provision and academic support, with these areas receiving collective scores of 95 percent.

John Latham, ULaw's CEO and president said: “To be ranked so highly is a powerful endorsement from our students and I am particularly pleased that we are leading the way on teaching quality and academic experience."

ULaw's York site will close next month, relocating to Leeds.

The University of York scored 86 percent - down on last year's 89 percent - while York St John scored 84 percent - down on last year's 88 percent.
