Wilfrid Laurier University has been honoured with a 2021 Global Student Satisfaction Award for its outstanding student-teacher interactions. The Global Student Satisfaction Awards is the only program informed by the opinions and experiences of students and new alumni.
More than 108,000 students and alumni from around the world submitted online reviews about their academic and extracurricular experiences. A total of 4,000 universities worldwide were reviewed, but only 444 qualified for the awards, which were presented in eight categories in three global regions: the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Laurier received the award in the Americas category.
“We strive to create a community where all students can thrive, and Laurier’s faculty and teaching staff play an integral role in realizing this goal.”
“Laurier is honoured to be recognized globally for our outstanding student-teacher interactions,” says Heidi Northwood, senior executive officer of global strategy and senior executive officer of Laurier’s Brantford campus. “We strive to create a community where all students can thrive, and Laurier’s faculty and teaching staff play an integral role in realizing this goal.”
The Global Student Satisfaction Awards are sponsored by Study Portals, an online global database of universities and degree programs, in partnership with British Council International English Language Testing System and Unibuddy, a peer-to-peer higher education recruitment platform.
