Students' Union

The University of Bath Students’ Union is among the top 10 Students’ Unions in the country for the third year in a row.

Jordan Kenny, President of the Students’ Union, said: “Whilst students’ expectations of their University and Students’ Union continue to increase, these results demonstrate that more often than not together we are succeeding at meeting and exceeding these.

About the NSS

More than 300,000 final-year students responded to the 2015 NSS survey from 155 HEIs,190 further education colleges (FECs) and five private HE providers across the UK. This represents a response rate of 71 per cent, the same as the previous year.

The results of the national survey provide valuable information for prospective students, and help universities, colleges and students’ unions to further improve the education and services they provide.
