National Student Survey

The National Student Survey closed on 30 April. The University achieved an excellent response rate of 65%, just ahead of the sector average of 62%, and a small increase on last year’s response rate (62%). The NSS is completed by final year undergraduates, and focuses mainly on the Teaching and Learning aspects of the student experience.
