The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual census of students’ feedback across the UK. It is an established survey that produces useful data to help providers identify areas of success and areas for enhancement. It also provides helpful information for prospective students by allowing current students voice their perspective on their experience.
The survey gathers feedback from eligible students who are towards the end of their studies on a range of questions relating to various aspects of their course. There is also the opportunity for participants to make open-ended positive and negative comments on their overall experience at their provider.
The data gathered is particularly useful for Court Theatre Training Company as it is used to continually improve and ensure our students are satisfied with their training.
In the NSS, the results showed that 86% of students were overall satisfied with the quality of the course (Q27*) with 100% of the respondents indicated that “the course has provided me with opportunities to apply what I have learnt.” (Q7*).
93% of students agreed that “staff have made the subject interesting” (Q2*), that “I have received helpful comments on my work” (Q11*), that “the timetable works efficiently for me” (Q16*) and that “I have had the right opportunities to work with other students as part of my course.” (Q22*).
Comments received from students in the survey included:
*Question 2: Teaching on my Course. Question 7: Learning Opportunities. Question 11: Assessment and Feedback. Question 16: Organisation and Management. Question 22: Learning Community Question. 27: Overall Satisfaction.

Miguel Campbell-Lewis (Court 21 Student)
Training in a working theatre is great because I don’t have to work in school like environment and it’s nice sharing the building with just two other year groups. Any show we do is based in the heart of London, which is very important for inviting people, and I can see shows for free…
