3 July 2019

The University of Law (ULaw) has achieved top ten placements among universities in the UK for 5 categories in the National Student Survey 2019.

The Survey, collected from over 330,000 students from 403 eligible institutions, ranks ULaw in the top ten Universities for teaching, learning opportunities, academic support, learning resources and student voice.

The figures show an overall improvement in student satisfaction this year at ULaw – rising above the national average once again. ULaw was 17th overall for all Universities.

ULaw has continued to respond following NSS student feedback over the last year which has led to improving its NSS results across a range of key areas including teaching quality, assessment and feedback, learning resources and the student voice.

Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO of ULaw, said: “It’s so encouraging to hear our students’ positive feedback. At The University of Law we place huge value on this in order to maintain our high standard of education. We constantly endeavour to provide teaching that is focused on employability and ultimately equips our students with the skills they need to secure successful careers in the real-world.

“This result is a testament to the efforts of our highly-skilled and enthusiastic staff who use their practical legal and business experience to deliver stand-out teaching that our students clearly value and enjoy. We look forward to continuing to provide this for our students.”

Aimed at final-year undergraduates, the National Student Survey (NSS) is a widely recognised authoritative annual survey, that gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education; asking for honest feedback about what it has been like to study on their course, at their chosen institution.

The National Student Survey is commissioned by the Office for Students (OfS) and has 27 questions relating to eight aspects of the student experience.

The NSS, carried out by the Office for Students on behalf of the UK funding and regulatory bodies, is one of the biggest student surveys in the world which, this year, captured the views of over 330,000 students across the UK.

The data will be published on the Unistats website at a later date, providing valuable evidence to inform potential students’ choices about where and what to study. The results of the survey, conducted by Ipsos MORI, provide valuable information for prospective students, and help universities and colleges to further improve the education they provide.
