The NSS is an annual student experience survey of undergraduates, normally in their final year, and is open until Tuesday 30 April.

It runs across all publicly-funded Higher Education Institutions in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Its aim is to gather feedback from students on the quality of their educational experience. This feedback is then used internally as part of our ongoing review of our provision, as well as externally to help inform the choices of future applicants to higher education (see the Unistats website).

Professor Tom Ward, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Student Education, said: "Feedback from students is very important to the University, and colleagues are asked to encourage completion of the survey to all their eligible students; the greater the response rate, the more reliable our results will be. 

"We want students to assess their experience honestly and objectively. Our Market Research and Insight Team will provide further guidance to Schools on promoting the survey, including a toolkit of resources and important information about inappropriate influence."

Students can access the survey via our website and are offered 100 free printer credits for their participation. Students can also access the survey through Minerva, and it should take no longer than ten minutes to complete. 

A promotional campaign will be rolled out across campus to encourage students to take part. The survey is administered by Ipsos Mori, an independent market research agency, so answers remain anonymous at all times.

The core questionnaire has not undergone any changes since last year. The survey asks students the extent to which they agree with a series of statements about their educational experience at Leeds. Results will be available in August.
