🎉 We`re thrilled that we have once again outperformed most universities in the UK in the National Student Survey (NSS), the benchmark for measuring the quality of universities from the students themselves! 🎉

We scored significantly above the national average in:

👩‍🏫 teaching
🤝 academic support
🎓 learning opportunities
📝 assessment and feedback
👥 organisation and management
🤎 the learning community
🗣️ student voice
🤗 wellbeing services

👞 Perhaps most proudly, given our focus on preparing students for their future careers, we achieved a 99% satisfaction rating from students for how well the course developed the knowledge and skills they will need in the future, well above the national average of 83%.

Norland is a special place to study because of its students, and as Principal Dr Janet Rose said in the news piece on our website, "we are so grateful to our wonderful students for endorsing their experience at Norland in such a powerful way.”
