Keele ranked in NSS UK Top 10 for multiple subject areas
Six Keele subjects have been ranked in the UK Top 10 for student positivity in the 2023 National Student Survey (NSS).
Creative Writing and Medicine ranked No.2 and No.5 respectively, with students rating teaching, academic support, and learning opportunities and resources very highly.
Midwifery, Philosophy, Environmental Science, and Children’s Nursing also ranked in the UK Top 10 based on student positivity, which is an average score across 27 questions asked in the NSS.
Feedback submitted for the NSS 2023 has seen Keele students praise a variety of factors related to teaching, support, and resources at Keele, with library resources and learning spaces scoring a 91% positivity rate, in addition to 90% of students being positive with how teaching staff explain things.
The NSS is a high-profile annual survey of nearly half a million final year undergraduate students across the UK. The survey gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education, asking them to provide honest feedback on what is has been like to study on their course at their university or college.
Professor Mark Ormerod, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost, said: "As a national survey of all final year students studying in the UK, the NSS is an important measure of student positivity. I am delighted that six of our subjects have been ranked in the UK Top 10 for student positivity, including Creative Writing ranked 2nd nationally and Medicine ranked 5th, as well as Environmental Science, Philosophy, Midwifery and Children’s Nursing, together with the high positivity levels for the quality of our teaching and our learning resources and learning spaces."
