National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education, asking them to provide honest feedback on what it has been like to study on their course at their institution. It is an influential source of public information about higher education and gives students a powerful collective voice to help shape the future of their course and their institution for current and prospective students.

The NSS asks 27 questions, relating to eight aspects of the student experience. Students also have the opportunity to tell us where things are going well or where they can be improved in an open-ended question. For an overview of what we've achieved as a result of the 2019 survey, have a look at our results.

The next NSS survey will take place early next year but we value your feedback at any time. You can tell us what you love, or want to be improved, anytime outside of surveys like the NSS by:
