CDD maintains strong performance in 2017 National Student Survey

HEFCE has published the results of the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS). Over 300,000 final-year students took part in the survey.

The Conservatoire for Dance and Drama performs consistently well in the NSS and this year continued to score above the sector average in overall satisfaction, with 87% satisfied.  Once again, the quality of teaching is rated highly by its students at 90% satisfied – exceeding the sector average by 5%. The Conservatoire was recently awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

LAMDA is a part of the Conservatoire alongside Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Central School of Ballet, London Contemporary Dance School, National Centre for Circus Arts, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and RADA. The Conservatoire publishes its National Student Survey results at institutional level, and does not publish the results of the individual schools.

The NSS is a useful indicator of the Conservatoire’s performance and offers an annual opportunity to review the student experience in conjunction with other feedback. LAMDA and the Conservatoire remain committed to maintaining world-leading vocational training in the arts.
