In the National Student Survey, Cliff College achieved a score of 93.75% for overall satisfaction from our final year undergraduate students. This is considerably higher than the national average of 75% and reflects the hard work of both students and staff throughout the challenges of learning through the pandemic.
We also scored 100% for several NSS questions on teaching, academic support, organisation and management and learning community. We’re grateful to our staff who have worked hard to give our students such a positive experience of their courses.
Of course, surveys like the NSS do not cover things like spiritual formation, discipleship and preparation for mission. These are as essential to studying at Cliff as the academic study and student support. We continue to work to ensure that all of Cliff’s education and training is of a high standard and are delighted that the NSS has delivered such a positive review of the College’s undergraduate programmes.
