In the results of the recent National Student Survey (NSS), the Department of Chemistry at the University of York has confirmed itself as one of the very best places in the UK to study chemistry.  Overall student satisfaction levels of 99% demonstrate a massive vote of confidence from our students.  With a 91% average satisfaction score across all questions on the survey, York was one of only five departments to break the 90% barrier – well above the average score for chemistry departments of just 83%.  Students indicated high levels of satisfaction in all areas of the survey, and in particular ranked York in the top 5 UK departments for teaching quality, academic support and the quality of assessment and feedback.  Combined with data from the Research Assessment which indicated that 75% of all research in the department was internationally excellent, the third best result, the National Student Survey helps confirm York as one of the elite UK chemistry departments.
