Universities UK response to the National Student Survey 2019

3 July 2019

Commenting on the results of the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS) published today, Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive of Universities UK, said:

 

“Student satisfaction is important to universities and it is heartening to see satisfaction scores increase, continuing at a level which would be the envy of many other sectors. The results across the UK are testament to both the contribution of university staff and to the investment that is being made in improvements to teaching, facilities and support services.

“The recognition from students of the quality of their experience underlines the importance of sustained and long-term university funding, to allow our world-leading universities to continue to be environments in which students can succeed and flourish.”
