School of History leads the Russell Group for Student Satisfaction in NSS 2018

The School of History once again received high levels of overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018.

13 August 2018

The survey, which is open to all final year undergraduates in higher education institutions across the UK, found that 95% of our students are satisfied with the quality of their course overall. This is up 3% on last year’s results and emphasises our continuing drive to deliver high levels of student satisfaction. This is also the highest score for overall satisfaction with History courses in the prestigious Russell Group.

92% of our students were satisfied with the teaching on their course, with 97% of our students agreeing that staff are good at explaining things. Perhaps most impressive was the overall satisfaction of those students studying our BA History (3 year) course, with 98% satisfied with the overall quality of their course.
