Point Blank Continues to Deliver Excellent Student Satisfaction Says NSS Results

Following the release of the NSS (National Student Survey) results, Point Blank Music School are proud to announce that we have attained a stand-out result of 86% for overall student satisfaction, again placing us in the top 5 of 21 music schools for our educational sector of music production schools. As the results of the survey reflect, Point Blank Music School puts our students first. Whether it’s expanding our state-of-the-art facilities, working to grow a diverse cohort of highly talented students or developing our range of acclaimed courses, we’re working tirelessly to ensure that the Point Blank experience is the best out there.

The NSS was designed to give students the opportunity to provide feedback about their courses at universities and higher education establishments, helping those looking to venture into further study by providing a benchmark of quality to help them select where they choose to enrol. Thanks to the all-around experience at Point Blank Music School, be it learning from industry professionals in the heart of London’s Hoxton or the endless array of events, masterclasses, workshops, networking opportunities and more, the NSS results have truly helped paint an accurate picture of what life at Point Blank Music School is about.

In addition to our overall satisfaction rating of 86%, we achieved a number of fantastic scores across the board:

  • 92% of our students said Point Blank staff made their subjects interesting.
  • 90% of our students said their course provided them with opportunities to explore ideas or concepts in depth.
  • 86% of our students said their course provided them with opportunities to bring information and ideas together from different topics.
  • 86% of our students said their course provided them with opportunities to apply what they have learned.

Speaking about the positive results of the NSS, Point Blank’s Managing Director Jules Brookes said:

Point Blank Music School has had an exciting time these last few weeks: awarded TEF Silver recognition by OfS, commended by QAA and now achieving 86% for overall student satisfaction in the NSS. As more students make the choice to study at Point Blank, we will continue our commitment to maintain and improve our quality by listening carefully to the student voice. We understand that working with our students to make informed choices and improvements is invaluable in helping us provide a superlative student experience. It is very encouraging to see that we have improved on areas including assessment and feedback from last year. As an institution, our goal is to keep evolving, keep progressing and to stay at the cutting edge of music education.
