The results of the National Student Survey are out (and can be downloaded from HEFCE web site), and Computer Science at Royal Holloway came top among research-intensive universities in the London area for student satisfaction.
Overall, 88% of the students who responded declared they were satisfied or very satisfied with their degree, which places us 19th in the UK out of 110 universities and 10th among research-intensive universities.
Our average rating for Teaching Excellence Framework criteria (Teaching, Assessment, and Academic Support) was particularly strong, placing us 4th among research-intensive universities.
These are some of the anonymous comments returned by our students in their NSS feedback:
"Great student community and even better relations between students and staff."
"Students get a lot of support from academic staff for taught modules and final year project."
"Lots of teamwork and lots of interaction with industry as in workshops."
"Large amount of study resources are available."
"Wide option of modules to do."
"The course has a variety of modules available to be chosen through second and third year. The coursework assignments have been varied and mostly intellectually stimulating. The final year project is very open and has many directions in which you can take it."
"A large range of projects, including one of our own making, for the final year. The flexibility allowed for the final year project has been great."
