The National Student Survey (NSS) gathers students' opinions on the quality of their courses, which helps to inform prospective students' choices; provides data that supports universities and colleges to improve the student experience, and supports public accountability. Every university in the UK takes part in the survey, as do many further education colleges, and response rates are consistently high.
This year, despite the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the survey shows a fantastic level of student satisfaction amongst Grŵp Llandrillo Menai students - with the overall student satisfaction at 77%. These results place the Grŵp as seventh out of 17 Higher Education providers in Wales, a position which the organisation has retained from 2020.
When asked about the teaching on their course, student replies indicated an overall satisfaction rate of over 83%.
Over 87% of students agreed that the teaching staff are good at explaining things, and 84% found that staff have made the subject interesting.
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai prides itself on providing Degrees with a difference through flexible timetables, and student responses indicate that 80% agree that the timetable works efficiently for them.
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai Higher Education Manager Joanne Owen said,
“I am thrilled to see that the hard work of our Higher Education students, and the staff who support them, has produced such positive results. We are very proud to be able to offer a wide range of degrees to our students, as many are not able to move away to study at University due to commitments at home.”
“It is truly an honour to be able to support them to move forward in challenging themselves to gain a degree and work locally. We are also proud to offer a wide range of bilingual Higher Education courses supported by Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, and have been delighted to see an increased uptake of these courses in support of the Welsh language standards.”
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai offers university courses in over 30 subject areas. The majority of the courses are delivered at the specialist university centre at the Rhos-on-Sea campus, or at our Bangor, Llangefni and Rhyl campuses. Some bilingual degrees are also available at Dolgellau.
Applications are still being accepted for Degree programmes for September entry. Please visit our website gllm.ac.uk/degrees to view our range of courses, or email email@example.com to speak to an advisor.
