Of course, these awards would not mean as much if our students were not satisfied too. We're glad that the National Student Survey (NSS) gives students a voice and that they tell us how well we're doing.
As you can see by the statistics below, our students show a huge amount of satisfaction in the work that our staff do to educate and support them. However, we'll still be doing all we can to show improvements for next year's survey too.
