The results from this year’s National Student Survey (NSS) have been published by the Office for Students. They show that City, University of London is ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the UK across six subject areas.

The survey, one of the largest of its kind in the world, seeks the views of final-year undergraduate students across the UK.

This year, over 339,000 students from 131 institutions responded to share their perceptions of their time at university.

City is ranked in the top 10 providers nationally and in the top 3 in London in 6 subject areas:

  • Aeronautical and aerospace engineering - 5th in the UK and 1st in London.
  • Bioengineering, medical and biomedical engineering - 9th in the UK and 2nd in London
  • English studies (non-specific) - 8th in the UK and 1st in London
  • Health sciences (non-specific) - 5th in the UK and 1st in London
  • Medical technology - 3rd in the UK and 1st in London
  • Ophthalmics - 3rd in the UK
  • Psychology – 3rd in London.

The ranking is based on the average positivity measure across the core set of questions (Q21 – Q25) and our relative performance in this measure compared to other institutions, nationally and in London.

The survey asks students questions about a range of factors related to their academic experience, including the teaching on their course, assessment and feedback, and how well courses are organised. This year, students were also asked a question about mental wellbeing services at their university for which City was ranked in the top 20 in the UK.

This data provides important insight to enable universities like City to continuously improve the courses offered to ensure all students receive the highest quality experience.
