In the recently released 2017 National Student Survey results, Warwick Computer Science ranked 2nd of the 104 computing departments in the UK, with an overall student satisfaction rate of 96%. Among Russell Group competitor institutions (an elite group of teaching and research universities in the UK), Computer Science at Warwick is ranked 1st for overall student satisfaction.

The National Student Survey (NSS) canvasses student satisfaction across all departments at all UK universities and remains the biggest survey of student satisfaction in the UK. Students are asked to respond on topics including teaching quality, learning opportunities, academic support, and organisation and management.

Among Russell Group institutions, Computer Science at Warwick ranked top in almost all major categories*:

  • 1st for overall student satisfaction
  • 1st for teaching quality
  • 1st for learning opportunities
  • 1st for assessment and feedback
  • 1st for academic support
  • 1st for learning resources
  • 1st for learning community
  • 1st for organisation and management

Throughout this summer investment continues in new teaching and laboratory facilities, with Warwick’s new interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences building (for the Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics) opening in 2018.


*These figures are based on the Russell Group institutions for which there is publishable data for the subject of Computer Science in 2017.
