Full marks for student satisfaction

18 November 2019

Cardiff University’s School of Welsh received a perfect score (100%) for overall satisfaction in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS).

This is the second consecutive year that the School has received full marks from final year undergraduate students. The School also scored over 90% in eight thematic fields:

  • Management and Organisation (97%)
  • Learning Community (95%)
  • Student Voice (95%)
  • Academic Support (95%)
  • Teaching on my Course (93%)
  • Learning Opportunities (92%)
  • Assessment and Feedback (92%)
  • Learning Resources (92%)

The School’s flagship Single Honours programme – BA Welsh – also secured excellent results with 100% in three categories (Academic Support, Learning Community and Student Voice) as well as full marks for overall satisfaction.

Responding to the results, Dr Angharad Naylor, Director of Teaching and Learning at the School of Welsh, said: “We are thrilled with the latest NSS results and grateful that our final year students took the time to respond. We are also thankful for their support and consistent enthusiasm and wish them the very best as they progress their careers.

“We are a close-knit and friendly community which is reflected in the warm relations between staff and students. With a response rate of 80%, these results truly reflect what our students think and we will be looking closely at the data to ensure that we continue to develop and strengthen our provision and the ways in which we support our students and meet their needs.”

The National student Survey is published annually. Final year undergraduate students are asked to rate their University experiences across several thematic areas including teaching quality, academic support, learning environment and community feeling.

*The 2019 NSS results were published in July 2019.
