Survey data indicate that part-time students feel left out of university life

Part-time students are significantly less likely to believe that university staff act on their feedback, according to an analysis by the Office for Students of National Student Survey data.

In a briefing on the state of the NSS—which is completed by final-year undergraduate students—the regulator said that just under half of part-time students felt their survey comments had been acted on by staff, 13.8 percentage points lower than their full-time peers. They were also less likely to feel like part of their university’s community, at 56.6 per cent compared with 69.4 per cent of full-time students.
