The NSS is a national survey which gives final year undergraduates the opportunity to share their views about their experience at University. Students 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 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. You can find out more about improvements which have been made based on previous years’ feedback by looking at ‘student feedback’ stories on Student News.

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