The National Student Survey 2019 is now open

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2019 is open now to eligible students – mostly final year undergraduates.

Coordinated by the Office for Students (OfS) and delivered by Ipsos MORI, the NSS gathers students’ opinions on the quality of their courses and education providers. The data from the NSS is used to aid prospective students’ choices, help institutions to improve the student experience and support public accountability.

The survey gives our students an opportunity to share honest feedback on their academic experience at Sussex.

How do students complete the NSS?

Eligible students can fill in the NSS online or via a mobile device at at any time from 7 January to 30 April 2019.

Later this week Ipsos MORI will contact students by email to invite them to complete the survey.

What’s in it for students?

All eligible students who fill in the survey online by 28 February can enter a prize draw to win £750 cash.

Beginning in February Professional Services staff will be running an NSS café in Dine Central, where final year students can enjoy a free hot drink while they complete the survey.

Students will also be able to get either a £5 food and drink voucher or £5 printing credit once they have completed the survey.

You can find more information on the ADQE NSS pages and the central NSS page for students.

Colleagues in Communications and ADQE are preparing resources to support schools to engage eligible students with the NSS. Materials will be shared later in January.

Professor Kelly Coate, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and Students, says: “I am looking forward to working together to maximise engagement with the NSS and gather essential feedback from our students.”
