Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster: 100% brilliant!

Date: 23 August 2010

We are delighted to announce that, in this year's National Student Survey, our overall satisfaction rating was 100%.

The survey is an opportunity for students to give feedback on their overall academic experience and was taken by 80 of our graduating students.

The NSS is a national initiative, conducted annually since 2005. The survey runs across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and participating HEIs in Scotland. Additionally, since 2008, Further Education Colleges (FECs) with directly funded higher education students in England have been eligible to participate.The survey asks final year undergraduates and students in their final year of a course leading to undergraduate credits or qualifications to provide feedback on their courses in a nationally recognised format. There are 22 questions, relating to the following aspects of the student learning experience:

  • Teaching on my course
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Academic support
  • Organisation and management
  • Learning resources
  • Personal development
  • Overall satisfaction
