What we found out

NCU has a good overall performance with some inconsistencies. The data seems to show that reviewers like the staff, as it’s correlating to a higher than average grade.

Though, reviewers might have been experiencing difficulties in their dissertation processes. Both “dissertation” and “chairperson”, that is the person who guides the dissertation process, correlates to a negative average.

It seems like reviewers who mention “phd” are positive to that topic. That points to reviewers who got the stage of starting or obtaining their PhD have a positive perception of that particular process.
