National Student Survey (NSS)

The NSS is a high profile annual census of all final-year undergraduate students across the the UK. The survey asks students to provide feedback on their courses in a nationally recognised format. The survey consists of 28 core questions relating to the following aspects of the student experience:

  • Teaching on my course
  • Learning opportunities
  • Marking and assessment
  • Academic support
  • Organisation and management
  • Learning resources
  • Student voice

As part of the main survey students are also asked additional questions on:

  • Mental wellbeing services
  • Freedom of expression

The results from the NSS are made available on the Discover Uni website which is designed to help prospective students make the important decisions of where and what to study. The results are also used by the University to identify what is going well, where improvements can be made and to enhance the overall learning experience for current and future students. 

The NSS runs from 29 January until the end of April 2024. Results will be available in the summer.
