Professor Kate Flemming, the Head of Department, said “I am delighted with these results. Staff throughout the department continually work hard to improve the student experience and liaise closely with our student representatives to support our midwifery and nursing students to become highly valued practitioners who make a real difference to people's lives.”
The NSS is a nationwide survey of final-year students in higher and further education. They answer questions on a variety of aspects of their university experience, including their department and course.
Over 339,000 took part in the 2023 survey, helping prospective students to compare courses and make informed decisions about where to study. The survey empowers those taking part to shape the future of their course, giving universities honest feedback on what they are doing well and where they can improve.
