National Student Survey 2009

NSS2009The National Student Survey is an annual survey of final year students at all institutions and departments in UK Universities. Students are asked to rank various aspects of their degree programmes. Twenty one of the twenty two questions focus directly on aspects of the educational experience and the survey is therefore considered to be one of the primary indicators of the quality of undergraduate teaching. In the category "Overall Student Satisfaction" (Question No. 22) the Department of Physics at Royal Holloway has been in the top five of Physics and Astronomy departments in the UK in two of the five years since the survey began. The survey is completely independent of the University and the responders are anonymised.

The table shown near the top of the page summarises the results of the 2009 survey (please click for a larger image). It lists UK institutions teaching full time degree programmes in Physics and Astronomy ranked in order of the average of the answers to the first twenty one questions. The colours code the responses to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th quartile for each question.

The full survey across all subjects can be found on the Unistats website.
