We are thrilled to announce that Kaplan has been awarded the highly regarded International Accommodation Quality Mark (IAQM), by the National Student Housing Survey (NSHS). This award recognises our student residences at Glasgow International College, Bournemouth University International College and our residence in Nottingham, which welcomes students studying at both Nottingham Trent International College and the University of Nottingham International College.
What is the NSHS?
The NSHS is an annual UK survey, which asks students to rate their accommodation. Since 2007, the NSHS has surveyed 189,989 students from 68 universities, and 30 different accommodation providers.
What does the International Accommodation Quality Mark mean?
The IAQM is issued to accommodation providers who demonstrate outstanding levels of satisfaction among international students. It is based on actual feedback given directly to the researchers from our residents. That means it's real students sharing their honest opinions, so it’s a great opportunity to find out what we’re doing right, and what we can improve.
Kaplan’s Residences Director, Richard Hume, says, “This is absolutely fantastic news. It shows that the little things we do to support our residents every day add up to a great experience.”
At Kaplan, we work hard to provide high-quality accommodation for you while you study, and our staff are proud to offer you a fantastic level of service and support.
We understand that moving to a different country is a big step. So when you arrive in the UK, we can meet you at the airport and take you directly to your accommodation. We’ll answer any questions you have about the local area, and make sure you have everything you need to settle in.
We’re always investing in our accommodation to ensure that your Kaplan housing experience is the best it can be. We recently refurbished our Glasgow residences, so that everything is fresh and new. This means that our team in Glasgow can focus on providing you with excellent service.
Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in this survey – we’re happy that you’re happy. We’d also like to congratulate all of our Kaplan staff who work hard to provide a home away from home for our students. Well done!
