The Open University has been named the top university in Northern Ireland for student satisfaction for the 10th year running, according to new research.

It reveals that 93% of OU students polled in Northern Ireland were "satisfied with the quality of their course".

John D'Arcy, Director of The Open University in Northern Ireland, said: "Our students are at the heart of what we do and we're thrilled that they continue to rate us so highly."

Undergraduates at St Mary's University College, part of Queen's University of Belfast, are also among the happiest in the UK with their degree, according to the latest annual survey.

Across the UK, the number of students who are satisfied with their degree has hit a record high, although thousands still say they are not happy with the overall quality of their course, according to the results of the National Student Survey.

It reveals the vast majority of undergraduates are content with the teaching and learning resources on their course, but less happy with the assessment and feedback they receive.
