Who is eligible to complete the NSS?

Final year undergraduate degree students.

How and when do you take part?

The NSS survey opens on Monday 29 January 2018 and closes on 30 April 2018. 

We recommend that you take part early so that you are not inconvenienced by written reminders and calls.

How long does it take to complete?

Approximately 5 minutes.

It will take a little longer if you answer the optional questions and include comments about your experience, which we would welcome.

What will it cover?

You will be asked to indicate your level of agreement with a series of statements (using a 5-point scale, in which 5 = definitely agree, and 1 = definitely disagree) on the following topics:

  • the teaching on my course
  • assessment and feedback
  • academic support
  • organisation and management
  • learning resources
  • personal development
  • Students’ Union

When are the results available?

The results of the NSS are collated by Ipsos-MORI and published on the HEFCE-owned website in the autumn.
