Second year running of improvements.

Celebrations are in order for UCEN Manchester following improvements for the second year running in the National Student Survey (NSS).

The independent annual survey is one of the key indicators of how students rate their time at higher education institutes and was completed by more than 300,000 final-year students in the UK.

This year, UCEN Manchester’s uptake was better than ever, exceeding their 75 per cent target by 10 per cent.

Michael Walsh, Vice Principal and Dean, said: “Our NSS results this year are fantastic and huge thanks must go to the UCEN Manchester curriculum and wider support teams who have worked incredibly hard in what has been a challenging academic year due to COVID-19.

The results are really important as they are national, independent and help prospective students make informed choices about where to study, and it is great to see such amazing improvements for a second year running.
