The Times Higher Education survey ranked 116 UK universities based on seven categories including academic experience, student welfare, facilities and accommodation.

The results are based on the responses of 200,000 students. 

Overall the three worst universities for student satisfaction were the University of the West of Scotland, University of Highlands and Islands, and University of Bedfordshire

All three ranked low in accommodation, connection to industries, facilities and societal experience.

LSE had the tenth worst ranking, scoring low in almost every category except facilities, security and connection to the industry. 

Seven universities based in London ranked low including London South Bank University, London Metropolitan University, City University of London and the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). 

Academic experience and student welfare have proven to be challenging for UK universities due to the university staff strike as it reduced student well-being.

Some universities did not take part in the survey, only institutions achieving at least 150 interviews over a three-year rolling period are included.
