This was our fourth year of participation in the National Student Survey (NSS) and we achieved an overall student satisfaction score of 89%, which was equal to our result in 2019. This puts us in the top 46% for all providers in England, Scotland and Wales who participated in the NSS in 2020 and in the top 29% of other drama schools and conservatoires.
Our response rate this year was 91%, which was a 6% decrease from the previous year. This year we only have results for the final year undergraduate Performance students (Acting, Actor Musicianship and Musical Theatre). Feedback was gathered from final year undergraduate Production Arts students, but due to the small number of students, this was not included in the published data.
It should be noted that approximately half of the fieldwork period was during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and results may not accurately reflect a typical student experience at Mountview.
The National Student Survey data was published on Wednesday 15th July 2020 and is publicly available via www.discoveruni.gov.uk.
