Our overall student satisfaction rating is 81%, placing us in the Top 20 in the UK and Top 4 in the Russell Group of elite UK universities.
The National Student Survey (NSS), an independent annual survey, evaluates how satisfied students are with the quality of their experience at university.
Students rated their satisfaction in eight areas: teaching; assessment and feedback; academic support; organisation and management; learning resources; personal development; Students’ Union; and overall satisfaction.
We’re proud to have achieved a high satisfaction rating in light of an extremely difficult year for both students and staff.
The results this year are a credit to the talent and dedication of our students and creativity and expertise of our staff.
Now we want to do even better, which is why we’ve invested in:
Durham is consistently ranked as one of the world’s leading universities: ranking 82 in the QS World University Rankings 2022, with 8 subjects in the World Top 50.
