SAE celebrates fantastic NSS 2020 Results The results for the National Student Survey (NSS 2020) were released in June. SAE is pleased to announce that we have seen a huge increase in our student satisfaction rate, up from 73.49% in 2019 to 81.31% in 2020. We performed really well in areas such as Learning Opportunities (87.54%), Teaching on my Course (87.15%), Academic Support (85.36%) and Student Voice (82.55%). Significant improvements were made from 2019 in Organisation and Management (showing a 9.11% increase) and Student Voice (an 8.63% increase).
About NSS The NSS, which is an independent student survey carried out by the Office for Students on behalf of the UK higher education funding and regulatory bodies, is used by universities and colleges as well as student unions to drive improvements across multiple areas of students’ academic experience. It is also used by prospective students to help inform their decision making about which university to choose and what to study.
Lead Student RepresentativesAt each of our campuses, we have a Lead Student Representative.
Student Voice at SAE Institute Students can communicate their feedback about their study at SAE Institute through various channels: By completing the induction feedback survey within the first month of study; By completing the student feedback survey for each trimester of study; Through monthly Student Representative meetings; Via their elected Student Representative who attends Campus Board of Studies in week 7 of each trimester of study.
Student Representatives SAE Institute operates a Student Representative system intended to promote communication between the student body and the Institute. The Student Representative group is made up of a team of students that normally consists of one elected Student Representative per cohort (class/intake) for each programme. It provides a forum for constructive debate and is intended to gauge student suggestions, with the aim of implementing effective measures to optimise the learning experience for current and future generations of students.
Board of Studies Elected Student Representatives from each programme cohort attend their Campus Board of Studies during each trimester of study. The purpose of the Board of Studies is to provide an effective forum for discussion between students and staff involved in all aspects relating to the academic experience of students in campus programmes with a more formal procedure than is normally the case with the fortnightly student representative meetings.
