By Gemma Cross


Leeds Conservatoire has achieved an excellent overall student satisfaction score of 80% in the 2022 National Student Survey (NSS), against a sector benchmark of 70.79%.

In addition, the conservatoire scored particularly highly in the teaching on my course (82%), academic support (78%), learning opportunities (80%), assessment and feedback (78%), and learning community (77%) areas; all of which were scored above the sector average.

Professor Joe Wilson, Principal at Leeds Conservatoire, said, “We are very proud of the excellent NSS results for Leeds Conservatoire. This is testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, and we would like to thank our students for recognising the conservatoire with this fantastic feedback.

 “Our programmes are characterised by inspirational training with experts in a huge variety of specialisms, supported by bespoke workshops and masterclasses by visiting practitioners. Our facilities are industry-standard, our curriculum is designed around industry practice, and students have access to a wealth of professional partners and expert knowledge both within and outside our curriculum.

“We value excellence and elite training in all forms of music and performance making, and so offer the broadest range of genres of any conservatoire in Europe, giving our students unrivalled opportunities for collaboration. We are the only UK conservatoire to offer degrees combining two performance/production disciplines, reflecting the increasing focus on multidisciplinary practice in the music industry and offering even greater opportunity for students to expand their creative vision.”

The NSS is managed by the Office for Students (OfS) and gathers students’ opinions on the quality of their courses. This helps to inform prospective students’ choices, provide data that supports higher and further education institutions to improve the student experience, and support public accountability. The survey is one of the largest of its kind in the world with almost 325,000 responses across the UK this year.
