The result comes from the National Student Survey, an annual online survey of all final year students in all degree courses in UK Higher Education Institutions. In the survey, 98% of Oxford medical students answered ‘agree’ or ‘definitely agree’ to the question “Overall, I am satisfied with the quality of the course.” Additionally, 87% of these students answered this question with ‘definitely agree’: by far the highest proportion in any UK medical school.
Professor David Paterson, Deputy Head & Vice Dean Medical Sciences Division (Education) commented: 'This is a very pleasing outcome and continues to demonstrate the outstanding commitment of our colleagues in providing a first class student experience in a research intensive environment.'
Dr Tim Lancaster, Director of Clinical Studies said, “This year, for the first time, the General Medical Council published pass rates for postgraduate examinations in all medical specialties by medical school of origin. This analysis showed that Oxford graduates achieved higher levels of success than graduates of all other UK medical schools. We are very pleased that Oxford has such positive outcomes for both these quality indicators, student satisfaction and graduate achievement.’
