The 2019 National Student Survey (NSS) results are out and the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine has received a 97.1 percent overall student satisfaction rating for its courses. This means that our students are, overall, the most satisfied with their courses within the Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy and the third most satisfied cohort within all of King’s.
What is the NSS?
As part of the NSS survey, students were asked about their overall satisfaction with their course. They were also asked, more specifically, about teaching on their course, as well as learning opportunities, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, resources, community and career opportunities.
The results of the survey help us to understand what we should be doing more of, what is going well and where we can improve. Previous results has enabled us to extend our range of optional modules across our BSc and BA programmes; design a ‘Study Abroad Experience’ module; and offer a wider range of career-related opportunities for GHSM students.
Meanwhile, for the first time, King’s donated £1 to a charity chosen by students for every NSS response. As a result, earlier this month the university awarded £3,245 to Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity.
