The National Student Survey (NSS), which involves every university in the UK, gathers students’ opinions on the quality of their course. 

We are proud to announce that our Department of Economics obtained an excellent result for its economics programmes in the most recent NSS survey:

  • We did particularly well for ‘Learning resources’, of which we scored 89%, making us 2nd in the Russell Group and top 10 in all the publicly funded universities in the UK. 
  • We received an 83% rating for ‘Teaching on my course’, placing us 2nd in the Russell Group.
  • We received an 80% rating for ‘Learning opportunities’, placing us 2nd in the Russell Group.
  • We received an 80% rating for ‘Academic support’, placing us 2nd in the Russell Group.
  • We received an 85% rating for ‘Organisation and Management’, placing us 2nd in the Russell Group.

Overall, we have had another fantastic year.  We are again amongst the top economics departments in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction, and our scores have improved in almost every category from last year.  These results capture the effort and commitment shown by all staff members, and students, in the department over the past year. More specifically, we believe that the adoption of digital learning technologies and the use of a range of innovative teaching and assessment methods by staff were well received by students and have resulted in these strong scores. Looking forward, as a department we will reflect on current practices and aim to further incorporate the student voice into the department's decision making processes.
