Final year undergraduate students once again had their say on the quality of the academic provision at their higher education (HE) provider during this year’s National Student Survey (NSS). The annual survey is run by the Office for Students and is the UK’s most extensive quantitative study of its kind. Categories covered in the survey include subject engagement, academic support and the learning environment.
Just under three-quarters of final year undergrads (72%, 330,035) from 403 HE providers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland responded to this year’s NSS. Results show overall satisfaction has marginally increased from the 2018 NSS from 83% to 84% in 2019.
The 2019 NSS marks UKCBC’s third entry into the national survey, and we’re happy to announce, once again, we received a very positive result; overall satisfaction for UKCBC stands at 94%. Students also recognised the College for its teaching standards and academic support, which is a testament to our hardworking staff.
Here are some noteworthy figures from the NSS results:
– Teaching support (“Staff are good at explaining things”): 94%
– Learning opportunities (“My course has provided me with opportunities to apply what I have learnt”): 90%
– Assessment and feedback (“I have received helpful comments on my work”): 92%
In addition to the NSS result, we also achieved a high satisfaction rate from our franchised students (92%), as reported in WONKHE.
Deputy Academic Director, Dalton Vincent, said:
“We are delighted to be formally recognised for delivering quality academic provision by the people that matter most – our students. UKCBC’s staff work tirelessly to provide students with both excellent course content and an outstanding support network, and the NSS result is a testament to that.
“The NSS result represents the fruits of our labours. Staff from across departments and campuses have worked hard to ensure students receive a quality education, and we look forward to building on this success in the coming years.”
