Students in England rate Bradford College top 3 for Dispensing Optician courses
Bradford College’s Ophthalmic Dispensing higher education courses ranked in the top three institutions in England according to the recently published National Student Survey (NSS).
The annual independent NSS survey gathers final-year undergraduates’ opinions on the quality of their courses. Students were asked 27 questions covering various aspects of their higher education experience.
Feedback from Ophthalmic Dispensing undergraduates placed Bradford College in the top three education institutions nationally for six out of the seven survey categories.
The College was ranked first place nationally by these students for the theme of student voice (listening and acting on individual and collective student views). This result was an impressive 20.8% above the national benchmark.
We also came in second place nationally for the themes of learning opportunities (11.6% above benchmark) and academic support (13.9% above benchmark) and ranked third place for marking and assessment (11.2 % above benchmark), organisation and management (22.5% above benchmark), and learning resources (6.9% above benchmark).
In total, 423 universities, colleges, and higher education providers from England participated and 290,639 students responded.
Asa Gordon, Vice Principal for Curriculum at Bradford College, said:
“I’m delighted with these results. The feedback will help shape the student experience for all our higher-level learners, and for part-time adult learners who balance various commitments. I’m also really pleased to see a 10% uptake in survey responses – above this year’s national average. Thanks go to our staff who continue to make a huge difference to the lives of our learners.”
Bradford College has offered ophthalmic dispensing training for over 70 years and is one of the UK’s most respected optical education providers. The courses are delivered by a teaching team with almost 80 years of combined industry experience and who are all qualified dispensing opticians.
The College has an established partnership with Specsavers, and courses include part-time Level 6 Diplomas in Ophthalmic Dispensing, a full-time BSc (Hons) in Ophthalmic Dispensing, and a part-time ABDO Low Vision Honours qualification.
