The National Student Survey 2013
The Nation Student Survey is launched today, Monday 28th January.
What is the NSS?
The National Student Survey (NSS) is a very well established national survey, which all undergraduates are invited to complete in their final year of study*. It is a nationally recognised survey which gives students a way of providing honest feedback on their satisfaction with their course.
The National Student Survey (NSS) 2013 is now live at [institution]. The survey is open to mostly final year undergraduates, who can complete it now at www.thestudentsurvey.com
Why should I take part?
• The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your learning experience
• Your feedback will be used to improve the learning experience at [institution]
• The results are taken very seriously and inform the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality
• Results are used by prospective students to make decisions on what and where to study
What happens with the results?
The NSS results are made publicly available to help prospective students make informed decisions of where and what to study. Institutions and students’ unions also use the data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses to help bring about change and make improvements for future generations of students.
How do I complete it?
During [survey start week] eligible students will be sent an invitation email to complete the survey by Ipsos MORI. Later, non-respondents may be contacted by post or ultimately by telephone. You can now complete the NSS online or via your smartphone at www.thestudentsurvey.com . You may opt out of the survey at any point during the fieldwork.
*You are eligible for the NSS if you are a final year undergraduate or are on a flexible part-time programme. If your final year cannot be easily predicted, you will be surveyed during your fourth year of study. If you were due to be in your final year in 2013, but have withdrawn or are repeating your penultimate year, you are also eligible to take part
