Students on Lower Mountjoy site

Our overall student satisfaction rating is 81%, placing us in the Top 20 in the UK and Top 4 in the Russell Group of elite UK universities. The National Student Survey (NSS), an independent annual survey, evaluates how satisfied students are with the quality of their experience at university.

Students rated their satisfaction in eight areas: teaching; assessment and feedback; academic support; organisation and management; learning resources; personal development; Students’ Union; and overall satisfaction.

We’re proud to have achieved a high satisfaction rating in light of an extremely difficult year for both students and staff.

Even better to come

The results this year are a credit to the talent and dedication of our students and creativity and expertise of our staff.

Now we want to do even better, which is why we’ve invested in:

  • New world-class college and students facilities at our Mount Oswald site;
  • A new £40 million Teaching and Learning Centre;
  • A further £31 million in sports and wellbeing facilities;
  • And we’re also supporting our students to learn new skills, broaden their experience and prepare for the exciting careers that lie ahead of them.
