2017 National Student Survey

09 August 2017

Commenting on the publication of the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS) results, a Russell Group spokesman said:

“Our members provide an excellent learning experience. Collectively, Russell Group universities included in the NSS figures this year have continued to outperform the sector as a whole. Our universities continue to invest millions of pounds in improving the teaching, facilities and services available to our students.

“This is the first year that some of these questions have been asked as part of the NSS and the overall picture is complicated by the impact of the boycott pursued by the NUS. The NSS is important but we would also encourage potential students to look beyond these statistics. There is no one data source that will tell you whether a particular course is right for you. The best way to get a clear idea of what university life is like is to speak to admissions offices, attend open days and read all the information that is available online.“
