Excellent NSS results for Centre for Lifelong Learning - 100% Satisfaction for Early Childhood two years running

The National Student Survey (NSS) is an opportunity for our finalist students to feedback to the Centre and the University on their experiences, opinions, and thoughts about the learning, teaching, and social experience of the undergraduate courses. As a very student focused department, we take the NSS results seriously and this feedback is used to shape our courses going forward.

We are extremely proud to announce that our Foundation Degree in Early Childhood has received 100% overall satisfaction once again. The course also achieved 100% satisfaction in a number of other areas, including:

  • The course is intellectually stimulating
  • My course has challenged me to achieve my best work
  • My course has provided me with opportunities to explore ideas or concepts in depth
  • I have been able to contact staff when I needed to
  • The timetable works for me

All surveyed academic areas of the course received 90+% satisfaction.

Our 2+2 Social Studies degree increased in satisfaction, achieving 84% overall satisfaction, the highest result in three years. Notably, the course scored highly on "I feel part of a community of staff and students" highlighting the importance of student input to Centre courses.

The Centre has achieved an overall satisfaction of 87.5%, a significant increase on last year and putting us above the University average. Students continue to state that the teaching, learning opportunities and academic support exceed their expectations.

We are delighted that our NSS results for 2020 reflect a strong student satisfaction across all of our undergraduate courses. These results could not be achieved without the dedication of strong teaching and administrational team along with enthusiastic and passionate students who continually strive for excellence within their studies and university experience.
