Students urged to have their say in National Student Survey

Student working

Final year undergraduate students are being urged to have their say before the National Student Survey (NSS) closes on 30 April.

To say thank you for taking part, the University is giving £3 in FREE print credits to students who complete the survey online.

There are also three £500 Graduation Packages up for grabs for the department with the most improved response rate within each faculty.

The Department of Philosophy is currently top of the table within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Chemistry are the frontrunners within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and Medicine leads the way within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

Last year’s winners used the prize to celebrate with students, with the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures holding an end of exams party, while the Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology gave students vouchers to spend at the reception event held in the Graduation Marquee following their ceremony.

The NSS is a national survey which gives final year undergraduate students the opportunity to share their views about their experience at University.

Students who are eligible to take part are asked to give their opinion on a number of areas including teaching quality, assessment and feedback on their work, academic support and learning resources. The results, which are published in August, are an important indicator of student satisfaction.

All eligible students have received an email inviting them to take part in the survey and explaining how to claim the free print credits.

You can find out more about improvements which have been made based on previous years’ feedback, including the 24/7 library opening hours, and the introduction of an alternative to Dropbox, by looking at ‘student feedback’ stories on Student News.

The NSS is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and administered by independent research agency Ipsos MORI. It is part of a quality assurance system to generate more detailed information about teaching quality.

Further information about the NSS is available here. If you have any queries about the survey please contact:
