National Student Survey 2020

Posted on 17 July 2020

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

The Department of Health Sciences has received excellent results for nursing and midwifery in the 2020 National Student Survey (NSS), supporting our top 10 position in the Complete University Guide 2021.

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. 

Over 90% of our nursing and midwifery students agreed that they were satisfied with the teaching on their course. Over 90% of our students were also satisfied with the learning opportunities and learning resources offered by the department.

Professor Paul Galdas, Head of Nursing and Midwifery, said: “These results reflect the tremendous hard work of our passionate staff and students, to ensure that York offers one of the most enriching and highest quality learning experiences for nursing and midwifery students in the country. Our students are an ambitious community of learners who will help shape the future of nursing and midwifery in years to come.”
