National Student Survey

Overall satisfaction amongst final year Cardiff University students with the quality of their studies remains high, according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS).

The 2016 survey found 87% of our students were satisfied with their overall experience at the University.

The results also show continued satisfaction with Cardiff University Students’ Union (87%) cementing its place as one of the very best in the UK.

Our aim is to make the student experience at Cardiff University a byword for excellence. These results are an important step towards achieving our aim. They are so significant because they are the actual views of our students. Our performance reflects the strong partnership we have built with our students and the commitment, dedication and enthusiasm of all our staff to delivering an excellent experience for students during their studies.

What is the NSS?

The National Student Survey is an independent survey which asks students to rate the quality of their Higher Education experience.

It is widely recognised as a key measure of student satisfaction and is a useful tool for prospective students when making study choices. The results are available to the public on Unistats.
