National Student Survey 2018

​Responding to the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS) results, Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive of Universities UK, said: "We are proud that student satisfaction remains very high at universities across the UK. This is down to the hard work, brilliance and dedication of university staff.

"Universities have prioritised investment in teaching, facilities and learning support, in response to feedback from students. Universities want every student to fulfil their potential and will continue to strive to create the best possible environment and conditions for them to succeed."
