Overall satisfaction reaches 100%
16 August 2018
Cardiff University’s School of Welsh has received a perfect score (100%) for overall satisfaction in the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS).
The National Student Survey, which is published annually, asks final-year undergraduate students to rate their University experience across several thematic areas (including teaching, academic support and personal development).
Feeding into this overall score, the School achieved between 90% and 100% ion six thematic areas:
- Learning Resources (100%)
- Organisation and Management (97.4%)
- Academic Support (94.9%)
- Learning Opportunities (94.9%)
- Teaching on my Course (94.2%)
- Student Voice (92.3%)
Dr Dylan Foster Evans, Head of the School of Welsh, said: “We are very proud of this year’s results which are a testament to the quality of our undergraduate provision. They also reflect the honest opinions of our students about the kind of teaching and extracurricular experience they have benefited from during their studies in Cardiff.
“The student voice is incredibly important to us – to measure our strengths and to identify areas for improvement. We have done a lot of work to strengthen and develop the forums available to students to contribute and offer feedback and I am grateful to staff within the school and members of our staff-student panels for their tireless hard work. We will continue to work closely with our students to ensure we maintain our excellent standards and continue to develop.”
In addition to excellent academic provision, the School of Welsh hosts a number of extracurricular and social events to help student feel at home in the School and the University. These events include the annual Stomp, quiz and careers evenings, and, this year for the first time, a summer ball was hell for the entirety of the School’s community – from first years through to PhD students.
