Evening celebration of NSS success

In the 2014 National Student Survey, Glasgow Dental School scored 100% for overall student satisfaction and was the top-ranked Dentistry programme in the UK. This result marks the fourth consecutive year of scoring 100%, after receiving the same score in the 2011, 2012, and 2013 surveys. Students also rated our course very highly on provision of learning resources, availability of advice and support, clear marking criteria, and helping our students present themselves with confidence. Satisfaction scores were over 90% for every question, with the vast majority of questions measuring between 95% and 100% satisfaction.

In recognition of this achievement, the Principal of the University, Professor Anton Muscatelli, allocated £1K from strategic funds to help the School celebrate its success and congratulate its staff. The event, with drinks and nibbles provided by the Conference & Visitor Services Office, was held in the beautiful surroundings of the Hunterian Art Gallery. It was attended by both Professor Frank Coton, Vice Principal for Learning and Teaching and Professor Anna Dominiczak, Vice-Principal and Head of the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, both of whom addressed the assembled staff and spoke warmly of the School’s success.
