Overall student satisfaction for History students at Warwick University has risen to 93% in this year’s National Student Survey (NSS). The University as a whole has seen noteworthy increases in satisfaction in 5 of the 6 main category scores, including a 7% increase in satisfaction with Assessment and Feedback.
Thank you to all the students that took the time to complete the survey, giving us a clear picture of what their learning experience was like and helping us identify areas of strengths and weaknesses so that we can bring about enhancements to the student experience for current and future students.
Warwick’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Nigel Thrift said:
This success reflects our commitment to provide Warwick students with a high quality research led learning experience, that also equips them to become internationally aware and to leave Warwick inspired and equipped to take on some of our world’s greatest challenges. It also reflects Warwick’s continued reinvestment in its campus to provide the experience that our students expect.”
The NSS is an independent high profile census of nearly half a million final year students at Higher Education and Further Education institutions throughout the UK. The NSS results inform prospective applicants about the student experience at Warwick, and the feedback helps potential students with their decision about where they wish to study.
The Department of History seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor of South Asian History, with a closing date for applications of Wednesday 13th March 2013.
