National Student Survey 2016 is live!
The National Student Survey (NSS) 2016 is now live at the University. The survey is open to eligible undergraduates until the end of April.
The survey should take no more than ten minutes to complete and students can claim 100 free printer credits for their participation.
The NSS is a student experience survey of undergraduates (normally in their final year) in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Now in its twelfth year, the NSS is a nationally recognised annual survey which provides students with an opportunity to give their honest opinions on what they like about their time on their course, as well as things that they feel could be improved. This feedback is used internally as part of our ongoing review of our provision, and externally to help inform the choices of future applicants to higher education. The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research agency, so answers remain anonymous at all times.
The format of the questionnaire remains the same as in previous years, asking students the extent to which they agree with a series of statements about their course. There will also be a question relating to the students union. Results will be available in August.
Responses to the NSS, and to all student surveys, are very important to the University. Individual Schools and Faculties have compiled action plans in response to last years student feedback, including the NSS and internal Programme Survey. The action plans are available to view.
A promotional campaign is being rolled out across campus to encourage students to take part. For further information about the NSS please contact Helen Theakston.
