“The latest controversy over the NSS follows reports that a lecturer at Kingston University told students: “If Kingston comes bottom [in the NSS], the bottom line is that no one is going to want to employ you because they’ll think your degree is shit.” His remarks to a class were recorded and made available on the internet.”

Clearly what we need now is a national student survey to ascertain how many students have come under this kind of pressure.
