Share your feedback in the National Student Survey

NSS 2021 campaign graphic

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2021 is open now to final-year undergraduates. The NSS is an important way to let us know what you think about your time at Sussex – what has gone well and what could be improved. 

Managed by the Office for Students (OfS), the independent regulator of higher education in England, and run by polling company Ipsos MORI, the NSS is used to assess the quality of your degree as a whole. If you decide to take part, you should think back over all years of your course when responding. 

Why take part? 

Your opinions are really important. NSS results are taken very seriously by your tutors, the University and the OfS. Results are made publicly available by the OfS to help prospective students, their families and advisors make informed choices about where and what to study. 

Plus, complete the NSS online by 28 February and you can opt in to a prize draw for £750 cash. The winner will be randomly picked by Ipsos MORI after the closing date. 

Below, Dr Graeme Pedlingham, Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor for the Student Experience, explains the importance of student feedback through the NSS:

How to complete the survey 

Eligible students can fill in the NSS online at at any time up to 30 April 2021. 

Ipsos MORI will contact students by email with an invitation to complete the survey. 

You can view more information on our NSS web page. 

Kelly Coate, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education and Students, said: “The NSS gives you a unique opportunity to have your say about your time at Sussex. Your views matter and will help to shape the experience of current and future students.”
