National Student Survey

The annual National Student Survey (NSS) is a census of all UK students in your final year of an undergraduate course, offering a chance to provide feedback on your student experience at Westminster.

The NSS has helped over two million students make their voices heard about the things that matter to them. 

This survey gives you the opportunity to tell us about your course and share your experiences of your time at Westminster – both what you liked and what you think could be improved, this will help shape the University and the student experience, both for students who are already here and those who’ll join us in the future.

The NSS results provide comparable information for universities and prospective students, available on the Unistats website.

Are you eligible to complete the NSS?

If you are a Final year undergraduate degree student, then you can take part in this survey.

Please note: all your responses will remain anonymous.

How and when do you take part?

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

If you fill in the survey in the first 5 weeks you will be eligible for a free £10 Amazon voucher or you can donate £10 to the Student Hardship fund. To collect your early incentive from your campus library, please complete the survey by Friday 2 March.

How long does it take to complete?

The survey questions will focus on your course experience and will take approximately 5 minutes to complete online. There are 27 questions some of which are new and amended for 2017. You can take a look at the NSS questions here.

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