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

The NSS results also show that 96 per cent of students in the Department were satisfied with their teaching and 91 per cent were satisfied with the organisation and management of their course.

Professor Paul Hamilton, Head of English at Queen Mary, welcomed the results: 

We put a lot of effort into enhancing student experience at QMUL English, and this result should emphasize to people thinking of coming to read English at Queen Mary that they can expect to enjoy an academically exciting, intellectually adventurous and well-run degree.”

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.
