Latest NSS reports high student satisfaction
16 August 2016
Students in the School of Physics and Astronomy have shown sustained levels of satisfaction according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS).
The latest NSS results found that 96% of our students were satisfied with their overall student experience.
Published annually, the NSS asks undergraduates to rate their university experience in areas including teaching, academic support and personal development. This year over 80% of the School's final year students took part in the survey.
Professor Matt Griffin, Head of School, said: "I'm very pleased to see an increase in our levels of student satisfaction. We pride ourselves on delivering a high-quality student experience that delivers highly employable graduates."
Professor Carole Tucker, Director of Learning and Teaching, said: "We are once again very pleased to report on the success of our Physics and Astronomy programmes in the annual National Student Survey; the NSS is an important source of feedback for us and we are proud of the value our students place on their Cardiff experience. Our joint top ranking within the UK Russell group for Overall Student Satisfaction is vindication of the emphasis we place on our teaching quality and the excellent engagement we have with our students."
