Departments of Computing and Communication Technologies and Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences are racing ahead in National Student Survey responses

Both the Department of Computing and Communication Technologies (CCT) and Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (MEMS) are leading the way both within their faculty and the wider university for National Student Survey (NSS) responses.

The NSS launched at Oxford Brookes on the 3 February. The survey is for final year undergraduate students across Higher Education Institutions in the UK. It provides an opportunity for students to give feedback on their time at University and includes questions on student satisfaction, lecturers, learning resources and course content.

The current average for the University as a whole for responses is 16.2%. However, both CCT and MEMS are beating this, each receiving a response rate of well over 40% with some courses reaching as high as 70%. The survey will run for another two months until May. The NSS plays an essential role in providing evaluations for institutions as well as information for prospective students, and affects the ranking of universities in league tables.
