Students who studied for degrees at the College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn were among the happiest in the country after their final year, according to latest statistics.

The college scored 94 per cent in a poll of 304,000 students nationally who were questioned about their opinions and asked about how satisfied they were with their degree course.

Elsewhere in the region the UEA scored 93 per cent, Essex 93 and Cambridge 92. Now the College of West Anglia is preparing to welcome even more students in the autumn who want to take up one of the degree courses with opportunities open still available across a wide range of subjects.

Charlotte Barber, higher education support co-ordinator, said: “We still have a lot of places available in clearing.

“And new students will have a lot to look forward to with the brand new facilities on the eighth floor of our newly refurbished tower block.”

Many students are now opting to undertake degree courses on their doorstep rather than taking up the extra costs involved when selecting a university further afield.

Among subject areas available in King’s Lynn are history, sociology, computer science, English Literature, construction, civil engineering and childhood studies.

There is a growing demand for places at the CWA. One person this week heard about a degree being offered and managed to secure a place the same day.
