Top in Wales for student satisfaction

NSS-Chemistry 2017

The University of South Wales is top in Wales for student satisfaction in Chemistry (National Student Survey 2017).

The survey covers all aspects of the undergraduate experience ranging from the quality of teaching, feedback from assessments and the opportunity to develop personal skills to boost future employment prospects.

Dr Natasha Galea, course leader, said: "With class sizes smaller than many other universities, chemistry lecturers at USW can therefore focus their attention on providing a high quality teaching environment structured to the needs of the class, rather than simply lecturing chemistry to a vast audience.

We pride ourselves on providing lots of hands-on experimental work within our chemistry laboratories which provides students with vital hands-on experience working in an industry-standard laboratory environment that is essential for their future employment prospects.
 
We work hard as a team to ensure the full support of our student’s learning journey. We foster good working relationships with our students and are proactive to feedback and responsive to our students' needs.
 
Alongside lectures and tutorials, some of which have been carefully developed to enhance chemistry-relevant personal skills highly valued by employers, students have the opportunity to attend numerous career workshops to boost employment prospects after graduating."
