NSS Success for School of English Literature

The release of the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS) results has seen phenomenal success for English Studies at Bangor, which is now ranked 1st in the UK

The School of English Literature achieved a hugely impressive 100% overall satisfaction score for its BA in English and its BA in English with Creative Writing.

The success for the School of English Literature reflects that of Bangor University as a whole, which achieved an overall satisfaction rating of 90%, placing the University among the UK’s top 15 non-specialist universities, the traditional institutions who offer a broad range of subjects. 

The results are drawn from the National Student Survey, a poll of around half a million graduating students at each university in the UK, which provides the most comprehensive feedback on the student experience at each institution.

Head of School Dr Andy Webb said, 'All the staff here work really hard to provide the very best academic experience in both English Literature and Creative Writing, and it great to see this recognised by our students. We offer our students exciting and challenging modules in areas including crime fiction, world-literature, Gothic film, cross-cultural writing, and adaptations of Shakespeare.

Experienced staff teach undergraduates from day one, week one, and so we quickly get to know our students as individuals, enabling us to tailor our support to their needs, for example in writing skills'. 

The past few years have seen great successes for the School of English Literature in the areas of research and student achievement - these latest NSS results are the icing on the cake. All staff in the School are now looking forward to welcoming new and returning students to Bangor in the Autumn.
