In Music, an area of the School where the undergraduate cohort is much larger, students also scored their course highly, with 82% of BMus students ‘satisfied’. Amongst its peer group of other UK music conservatoires, Guildhall scored joint highest in academic support (88%) and for its library resources (94%).

The UK’s National Student Survey (NSS) gathers students’ opinions on the quality of their courses, in order to contribute to public accountability, help inform the choices of prospective students and provide data that assists institutions in enhancing the student experience. The NSS has been capturing final-year undergraduate students' feedback on their course experience from every university in the UK since 2005; last year, over 300,000 final year students across the country completed the survey.
Full outcomes of the NSS will be available at the Unistats website from September.
