This year's National Student Survey highlights very high satisfaction with teaching, resources and management.

Overall satisfaction at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies has been rated at 94% in this year’s National Student Survey (NSS) of final year undergraduate students.

Published on 9th August 2017, the NSS also revealed that 89% of students at the School were satisfied with the quality of teaching.

This year new questions were added in the areas of Learning Opportunities, Learning Community, and Student Voice.

Head of School, Professor Stuart Allan, said: “This year’s results demonstrate our commitment to provide a high-quality, student-led experience across all areas, including personal ‘Learning Opportunities’ and respect for the ‘Student Voice,’ which both received an 84% satisfaction rating.

"These figures are a credit to colleagues across the breadth of our School, who dedicate themselves to ensuring our students make the most of their time with us. It is pleasing to note 88% of respondents agreed that we foster a ‘Learning Community,’ while ‘Management and Organisation’ was highly rated at 95%. And 91% agreed that the Learning Resources provided were of a high standard.

“We welcome the challenge of striving to improve upon these figures, especially in what promises to be an especially exciting year ahead.  We will do our utmost to ensure our new and existing students experience a smooth transition when our move to No. 2 Central Square takes effect in September 2018."

The move to Central Square alongside national print, online and broadcast organisations (not least BBC Wales next door) will create an industry-academic interface, putting the School at the heart of a vibrant media environment in Cardiff city centre.
