The 2013 National Student Survey (NSS) questioned UK undergraduates on various aspects of their student experience, including their overall satisfaction.

The NSS survey results show that out of the 90 UK institutions which run Drama degrees, Queen Mary is ranked joint third. Overall satisfaction among QM Drama students is 97 per cent, with the School scoring highly in many other core categories of the survey:

  • 98 per cent of students are satisfied with their teaching
  • 95 per cent of students are satisfied with their personal development
  • 93 per cent of students are satisfied with the organisation and management of their course
  • 85 per cent of students are satisfied with their academic support

Dr Michael McKinnie, Head of Drama at Queen Mary, welcomed the results:

I am delighted with these results, which reflect the great experience students have studying Drama at Queen Mary. They are a testament to the high quality of our undergraduate degree, and the innovative and engaging teaching of our staff."

NSS 2013 results for Queen Mary overall show that 89 per cent of its students are satisfied with the quality of their course, a five-year high and three percentage points above the national average. Among Russell Group universities nationally, QM’s students are now the eighth most satisfied.
