The results of the 2020 National Student Survey (NSS), published on 15 July, once again paint a positive picture of geography student experiences across the UK.
The survey, which is completed by final year students in every UK university, reveals 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.
The survey also indicates that geography students are highly satisfied with specific elements of their university experience, including the organisation and smooth running of their course, and the ability to access specialist resources and facilities. In all of the survey’s categories, geography, earth and environmental studies students responded more positively than the national average across all subjects.

The NSS is open to final year undergraduate students between January and April each year. The resulting data are available for every course at UK universities via the DiscoverUni website.
