PAIS Department NSS Results: 94% Overall Satisfaction

NSS Logo 2017We would like to thank all our students, recent graduates, and academic and administrative colleagues for our outstanding results in the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS). Every year finalists complete the NSS across the UK and it is a key component of league tables published in the media, in which PAIS is a consistently high performer.

We are delighted to announce that in the 2017 NSS we have achieved an overall satisfaction rating of 94 per cent. We are the leading department in the Faculty of Social Sciences for overall student satisfaction and second in the University (the Institution, as a whole, has achieved 86 per cent) and the Provost has sent us her personal congratulations on this terrific result.

Among Russell Group competitor institutions (an elite group of leading teaching and research universities in the UK), Politics at Warwick is ranked: *

  • No 1 for student voice
  • No 1 for learning opportunities
  • No 2 for overall satisfaction
  • No 2 for assessment and feedback
  • No 2 for teaching
  • No 2 for learning community
  • No 3 for academic support
  • No 3 for organisation and management

Other key NSS headlines: **

  • PAIS is No 1 in the University for assessment and feedback
  • PAIS is No 2 in the University for organisation and management
  • PAIS is No 3 in the University for student voice

We look forward to working in partnership with our amazing students and dedicated staff to sustain and build on these strong results, which reflect our deep commitment to research-led teaching excellence.

At the start of the new academic year we will feedback in greater detail to all students and we will discuss and take forward ideas for further enhancement of the PAIS student experience via our Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC).

To all of our current and incoming students: we hope you enjoy the rest of the summer vacation and we look forward to seeing you all in October.
