High levels of student satisfaction at the RAU, NSS results 2017
The University is pleased to report continued high levels of
student satisfaction across the board, as the National Student Survey (NSS)
2017 results are announced (9 August).
The RAU has achieved an overall figure of 87%
student satisfaction, coming in 3% higher than the national average (84%). This
places us in the top 30% of UK universities, with a ranking of 39 / 151.

If you're continuing your studies next year, then any outstanding balance will remain on your RAU Unicard to use in the next academic year.
If you're in your final year, your remaining balance will be accessible six months of you leaving the University. Therefore, we recommend spending all your RAU Unicard credit before completing your course.
