The best university in the Netherlands is based in Wageningen, say students. The National Student Survey 2013 shows that the students of Wageningen University are more satisfied with their education than students from other universities.
National Student SurveyWageningen students gave their university an above average rating on eighteen (out of twenty) subjects. On many subjects Wageningen received the highest score of all universities. The questions in the National Student Survey, an annual survey coordinated by Studiekeuze123, were about the content of the programme, the lecturers, facilities, preparation for professional careers, class schedules, the general atmosphere, and so on.
The National Student Survey was completed by 264,710 college and university students.
Best university for eight consecutive years
The results of the National Student Survey will also have an effect on Wageningen University's ranking in the Keuzegids Hoger Onderwijs (Study Guide for Higher Education). That study guide bases its rankings partly on students' judgements, but also on the views of education experts. Wageningen University has been qualified 'Best University in The Netherlands' for eight consecutive years by Keuzegids.
