NSS Success for UCEN Manchester

UCEN Manchester is celebrating after vastly improving in all 11 categories of the National Student Survey (NSS), including ‘Overall Satisfaction’, ‘Teaching and Learning’ and ‘Assessment and Feedback’.

The independent annual survey is one of the key indicators of how students rate their time at higher education institutes and was completed by more than 300,000 final-year students in the UK.

This year, UCEN Manchester’s uptake was better than ever, exceeding their 70 per cent target by four per cent.

Michael Walsh, Vice Principal and Dean, said: “I’m absolutely delighted with our NSS results, which are down to the hard work and dedication of the UCEN Manchester curriculum and wider support teams. 

The results are really important as they are national, independent and help prospective students make informed choices about where to study. I’m so proud of the whole team.
