Warwick Computer Science Tops Russell Group Institutions in National Student Survey 2018

NSS Logo

In the recently published National Student Survey (NSS) 2018, Computer Science at Warwick ranked 4th of the 108 computing departments in the UK, with an overall student satisfaction rate of 94%. Among the Russell Group, an elite group of research-led universities in the UK, Computer Science at Warwick is ranked 1st for overall student satisfaction for the second consecutive year.

The NSS canvasses student satisfaction across all departments at all 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 the Russell Group, Computer Science at Warwick ranked first or second in almost all major categories.

Investment in new teaching and laboratory facilities is well underway, with Warwick’s new Mathematical Sciences Building soon to open and staff eagerly preparing for an exceptionally talented student intake for the 2018-19 academic year.
