Royal Holloway has been awarded an impressive 89% for overall satisfaction in the 2013 National Student Survey (NSS), with some departments achieving over 95%.
This marks an increase for the fifth successive year, placing Royal Holloway in the top 25 of universities in the UK and above the national average.
The Department of Physics and the Department of Earth Sciences recorded the highest overall satisfaction this year (with 100% and 99% respectively) and Royal Holloway recorded a higher score in categories including Teaching, Academic Support, Learning Resources and Personal Development.
“I am delighted that our students have expressed such high satisfaction with their Royal Holloway experience again this year. Our success in the NSS is testament to our commitment to high quality research-led teaching and determination to provide an outstanding student experience,” said Professor Paul Layzell, Principal of Royal Holloway.
“We will be undertaking further analysis of scores to further improve our performance and ensure every student gets the most out of their university education.”
The NSS, now entering its ninth year, provides all final year undergraduate students in UK higher education institutions and further education colleges with the opportunity to express their opinions on what they liked during their time at university. Around 304,000 final-year students responded to the NSS survey this year from across the UK.
