Top courses rated by Portsmouth students in National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) has revealed which of the University’s courses are the most highly rated by our students.

The University is now ranked 19th out of 150 higher education institutions nationally with 88 per cent of our 2018 final year students satisfied with their university experience, compared to a sector-wide average of 83 per cent. This is the 12th year in a row we’ve been above the sector-wide average in the NSS.   

The NSS is divided into eight main question areas including academic support and learning resources. The University ranked above the sector-wide average in all of these areas. We also exceed the sector in 24 of 26 sub questions such as timely feedback, intellectually stimulating courses and students feeling part of a University community.

The results also showed 55 of our courses across all faculties with a satisfaction rate of 90% or above. Faculties and schools can use these figures to promote their courses via social media and others channels.
