The results of the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS), published this month by the Office for Students, paint a positive picture of undergraduate geography courses across the UK.
The survey, which is completed by final year students in every UK university, revealed that 88% of the respondents studying geography were satisfied with the overall quality of their course; higher than the 83% nationwide average for all respondents.
In addition, 87% of geography respondents agreed that their course is ‘intellectually stimulating’, indicating that undergraduate geography courses are continuing to communicate the relevance and diversity of the subject to students.
The NSS is open to final year undergraduate students between January and April each year, with the resulting data becoming available for every course at UK universities by the end of August via the Unistats website, where you can also find out which courses have received the RGS-IBG programme accreditation.
