Cardiff University’s School of Welsh has scored 89% for overall student satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS).

Published annually, the NSS asks undergraduates to rate their University experience across several thematic areas including teaching, academic support and personal development.

This year the School scored highly in the following areas:

  • Staff are good at explaining things (100% agreed)
  • The course is well organised and running smoothly (96% agreed)
  • The course is intellectually stimulating (96% agreed)

The School also achieved high satisfaction levels in three key thematic areas – teaching, organisation and management and personal development.

Professor Sioned Davies, Head of the School of Welsh, said: “The NSS results are important because they represent real views from our students. We want to provide the very best academic and pastoral experience for all of our students and take the feedback very seriously. It is heartening to see high satisfaction levels in a number of areas and we will work to maintain and improve these. Despite a strong showing there are clearly areas which require our attention and we will continue to work in partnership with our students to improve satisfaction.”

Satisfaction with Cardiff University Students’ Union remained high (87%) cementing its place as one of the very best in the UK.
