BBC-Tuition-fees1The BBC featured results from the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and the Higher Education Academy’s (HEA) recent survey, the 2015 Student Academic Experience Survey.

YouthSight provided fieldwork and data analysis services for this study, including collecting all 15,129 responses from full-time undergraduate students.

The BBC reported that , on average, students receive 12 hours "contact" time per week.  The survey suggests 59% of students are "fairly satisfied" with their course - and a further 28% are "very satisfied". But, with "the benefit of hindsight", more than a third of students would have chosen a different course. For the full article see here.

HEPI’s research was also covered in The Daily Mail and The Scotsman.
