Earlier today, I sent this letter to The Western Mail newspaper:
SIR – As a graduate from the University of Wales Lampeter just over two years ago, I have serious doubts about the allegedly high student satisfaction score for this once-great institution. Not only do only a tiny proportion of students ever bother to attempt to reply to these annual surveys, but also the high dropout rate is a better indicator of real levels of student satisfaction.
The main reasons for the high dropout rate can be attributed to the university’s dull rural location (which cannot be helped), the poisonous, vindictive atmosphere within the Students’ Union and the amateurish, incompetent, lazy and mean-spirited leadership of the university’s senior administrators. The Students’ Union, its’ elected officials and management are the mirror images of Uncle Joe Stalin and Hamas, while the most senior university officials quietly collude with the union’s activities in order to protect their own privileges and cover-up their own scandalous misconduct.
