EL ANSARI, W.; DAVIS, T.  and  PEARSON, D.. Students’ satisfaction with their health and social care educational programmes: qualitative findings from the UK. East. Mediterr. health j. [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.4, pp. 925-938. ISSN 1020-3397.

This article reports a qualitative assessment of students’ satisfaction with their health and social care educational programmes. The responses of 66 students who completed an open-ended "comments" section at the end of a survey to assess students’ satisfaction were coded and analysed using the constant comparative method. Respondents commented on: course organization, module organization, workload, module content, course delivery, personnel delivering modules, course workload and assessment, and resources available. The findings suggest that 3 interrelated factors are imperative for "educationally effective" modules: 1) module administration, content and assessment; 2) module teams and university resources; and 3) module relevance.
