Newman University’s library has been named as the best university library in Birmingham following the results from the recent National Student Survey (NSS).

The 2018 NSS surveyed recent graduates, giving them the opportunity to voice their experience of their specific course and more widely about their whole university experience at their chosen place of study. The survey aims to shape the future for students at each respective university and help prospective students decide where and what to study.

The NSS survey provides universities with data to improve the student experience as well as understand what students feel each university is already doing well.

The most recent survey showed that out of all the university libraries in Birmingham, Newman University Library came out as number one and more widely the University Library is within the top 25% of university libraries in the UK. The students at Newman University scored the library well with an 89.71% satisfaction rate for the library resources supporting students learning.

Comments such as ‘The library service and facilities are amazing, and the library staff are very helpful’, ‘Library and resources are very good and are easily accessible with library staff always willing to help’ and ‘the school experience section in the library has many resources and ideas available’ were given by students, adding to the positive results.
