National Student Survey 2019

Posted on 5 July 2019

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

The Department of Psychology has received 93% for 'Overall Satisfaction' 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 first in the surveyed Russell Group universities in four areas - 'Teaching on my Course', ‘Academic Support’, 'Organisation and Management' and ‘Learning Community’ - and achieved over 90% satisfaction in four of the assessed areas:

  • Teaching on my course (92%)
  • Organisation and Management (90%)
  • Learning Resources (91%)
  • Overall Satisfaction (93%)
