QSB undergrads show highest student satisfaction rates exit poll reports

Posted on February 8, 2010

The results are in for the 16th annual Queen’s Undergraduate Exit Survey and, once again, Commerce students have the highest level of satisfaction of all faculties across the University.

Overall, undergraduates University-wide continue to be very satisfied with their Queen’s experience, with 80 per cent of respondents agreeing or strongly agreeing with the anchor statement, “Overall, my learning experience at Queen’s was excellent.”

Queen’s School of Business students had the highest level of satisfaction, with 94 per cent rating their experience as excellent, up from 91 per cent in 2008.

The Exit Poll is designed to provide annual insights into the University’s overall performance at the undergraduate level, and into each faculty and school based on students’ perceptions of their education as they graduate. Questions focus on three main areas: the quality of the learning environment, the contribution of Queen’s education to learning and development in key areas and student satisfaction with services and facilities.

“The exit poll is an important metric for future decision making,” University Registrar Jo-Anne Brady told Senate. “Past results have been invaluable to the university, allowing faculties and schools to learn from students’ feedback and help with planning.”
