National Student Survey 2019

Posted on 5 July 2019

We’re delighted to have some of the happiest nursing students in the UK.

The Department of Health Sciences has received 100% for 'Overall Satisfaction' for children's nursing and 93% for learning disabilities nursing in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS).

The NSS is a nationwide survey of final-year students in higher and further education that encourages them to give honest feedback about a variety of aspects of their university experience, including their department and course. This helps prospective students to make informed choices and also influences real change in future students’ experiences, from institution-level to course-level. 

The University as a whole was rated highest of the Russell Group universities in the survey for overall satisfaction.

The Department placed joint first out of all surveyed universities for ‘Overall Satisfaction’ in Children's Nursing. We were also first among surveyed Russell Group universities in eight out of nine assessed areas for at least one of our fields of practice.

We achieved over 90% satisfaction in 'Learning Resources' in all of these fields of practice (adult, children's, learning disabilities and mental health).
