National Student Survey 2018

At Anglia Ruskin, students are at the heart of our University. We want their educational experience to engage and challenge them so they reach their full potential.

And so we’re delighted that our final year students have once again rated their educational experience highly in the annual National Student Survey (NSS).

This year, ARU's overall satisfaction score has increased to 84% – above the sector average of 83%.

As well as our overall satisfaction score increasing to 84%, it’s fantastic to see that our students:

We really value the results, as they help us to enhance the student experience at Anglia Ruskin. They also help prospective students to make an informed choice about where they want to study.

Celebrating our students’ successes

We’re extremely proud of our students and their achievements. And we’re proud of #OurPeople, too, and the difference that staff are making to our students’ lives.
