Newcastle Uni Computer Science NSS Ratings

I'm deciding between Nottingham and Newcastle for computer science BSc, and it seems like the ratings for Newcastle are pretty bad this year on the National Student Survey. On the other hand, most feedback I've heard anecdotally on the course is that it's good.

Any thoughts on why it could be so low? I love Newcastle and everything about it compared to Nottingham but this is the only thing that makes me nervous.

Hi Anonymous,

NSS scores are based on multiple factors and we constantly strive to address the issues raised and continue with the good practices identified.

We would encourage you to attend one of our upcoming Open Days to visit our School of Computing if you haven't already. You will be able to meet with some of the staff and students in the school, view the facilities, and have any questions you may have answered. This will give you an insight into the school and help you make a more informed decision. If you are an offer holder, please join us at our next Offer Holder Experience Day for Computer Science where we there will be demo lectures and practicals to give you a feel of what to expect when studying here.

Alternatively, you are welcome to contact the School of Computing with specific queries via: [email protected]
