The results of the 2015 National Student Survey (NSS) show that the School of Modern Languages came first in satisfaction for Japanese Studies assessed in Asian Studies, both in the sector and the Russell Group.

Published annually, the NSS asks undergraduates to rate their University experience in areas including teaching, academic support and personal development. Overall satisfaction with Japanese Studies was scored 100%.

Students were highly satisfied with library and IT resources and services, and with the enthusiasm of teaching staff. The latter performed above the University average in these results, as did the perception that the courses have help students present themselves with confidence and improve their communication skills.

Satisfaction with teaching, personal development and overall satisfaction saw improvements of 2-3% on last year’s results.

Head of School Professor Claire Gorrara says: “100% satisfaction from our Japanese Studies students is a ringing endorsement of the excellent student experience on our Japanese Studies programmes and the quality of teaching that they receive. We are absolutely delighted with this feedback from our student community"

Cardiff University has recorded its highest level of overall student satisfaction. 90% of students were satisfied with their overall experience. The results put the University above both the Welsh (85%) and sector-wide (86%) average for overall satisfaction. You can find out more on the University’s central news pages.
