Students on campus

Undergraduate programmes in Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham have ranked highly in the 2021 National Student Survey (NSS).

The subject is ranked in 3rd place in the Russell Group and 7th overall in the UK for overall satisfaction. The Russell Group is an organisation representing 24 world-class, research-intensive UK universities.

Feedback from our students also helped our Chemical Engineering degrees secure a top-ten ranking in the whole of the UK.

Commissioned by the Office for Students, the NSS is a high profile annual survey that asks students about their experiences in higher education. Every university in the country takes part.

Throughout the difficult times of last year, our School has been committed to the delivery of our programmes. The outcomes of the NSS reflect our ability to adapt our teaching so that our students still received a high quality learning experience.
