LITERATURE REVIEW

Experience of a university student includes everything he feels the moment student enters the university till the moment he is awarded by a degree. So, his experience maybe positive and maybe negative, we are trying to find out all the factors which might affect the experience of a student. This study will identify the factors through which we can measure student’s satisfaction and their experience.

Students’ satisfaction defined as a short term attitude, resulting from an evaluation of students’ educational experiences (Elliot, 2001), it is a positive antecedent of student loyalty (IM Salinda, May 26, 2017) and is the result and outcome of an educational system.

Students’ satisfaction is a multidimensional process which is influenced by different factors. According to Walker-Marshall & Hudson (1999) Grate Point Average (GPA) is the most influential factor on student satisfaction (Navaro), (Appleton-Knapp, 2006) identified two groups of influences on student satisfaction in higher education as personal and institutional factors. Personal factors cover age, gender, employment, preferred learning style, student’s GPA and institutional factors cover quality of instructions, promptness of the instructor’s feedback, clarity of expectation, teaching style. (krishnan, 2013) identified quality of lecturers, quality of physical facilities and effective use of technology as key determinant factors of student satisfaction. As well as, student satisfaction in universities is greatly influenced by quality of class room, quality of feedback, lecturer-student relationship, interaction with fellow students, course content, available learning equipment, library facilities and learning materials (Bogdan Sojkin, May, 2002) (García-Aracil, January 2009) (George D. Kuh, 2001) In addition to that, teaching ability, flexible curriculum, university status and prestige, independence, caring of faculty, student growth and development, student centeredness, campus climate, institutional effectiveness and social conditions have been identified as major determinants of student satisfaction in higher education.
