What is the NSS?

The National Student Survey (NSS) is a national survey, which has been conducted by Ipsos MORI annually since 2005. It gathers opinions from final year undergraduates on the quality of their courses. The survey asks undergraduates to provide feedback on what it has been like to study their course at their institution.

The survey runs across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.

The NSS is run by Ipsos MORI and commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). 

The NSS is your opportunity to provide feedback regarding your course. Let us know the things that are good about your course, and the things that could be improved.

Why should I take part?  

We listen to your feedback, and as a result, since 2012, overall satisfaction levels have increased by 5%. Our student satisfaction score for 2017 was an impressive 88% and we're keen to improve that even further!

The NSS results are a prominent part of the Key Information Sets (KIS) and Unistats, the official resource for completing UK Higher Education courses. The NSS provides prospective students with comparable data to aid their decision making about where to study.

How to complete the NSS 

The NSS 2018 closed on April 30 2018. The survey will re-open for final year undergraduates in early 2019.
