Students urged to complete National Student Survey

Your experience counts

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, students who complete the survey online can choose to receive £3 in FREE print credits or to donate the £3 to the Guild’s charities (Teenage Cancer TrustMRANGRoyal Voluntary Service, and Catalyst Performing Arts).

There are also £500 prizes up for grabs for the departments within each of the three University faculties with the most improved response rate in comparison to last year.

The School of Psychology is currently leading in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences with a response rate 2% higher than at the same point in the survey last year. The Department of Politics is leading in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences with a 10% uplift on their response rate at this point in 2015; and the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences is leading in the Faculty of Science and Engineering race with a 12% improvement.


The winning departments at the end of the survey will be able to spend the £500 celebrating with their students after the summer exams or during the graduation period.

How to take part:

Students who are eligible to take part in the survey will receive an invitation email. Please follow the link in this email or go directly to to claim your free print credits or gift the £3 to charity before completing the survey.

The survey is an opportunity to share your opinions on what you like about the University, as well as things that you feel could be improved. It asks students to give their opinion on a number of areas including teaching quality, assessment and feedback on their work, academic support and learning resources. It is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and administered by independent research agency Ipsos MORI.
