  1. The National Student Survey (NSS) is a high-profile annual census
    of nearly half a million students across the UK. Conducted each
    year since 2005, the NSS has become renowned for producing
    robust and reliable data. The survey asks undergraduates to
    provide feedback on their course.
  2. The NSS is managed by the Office for Students (OfS) and
    undertaken by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the UK funding and
    regulatory bodies – the Department for the Economy (Northern Ireland), the Scottish Funding Council
    and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales.
  3. The NSS gathers students’ opinions on the quality of their courses which helps to:
     inform prospective students’ choices;
     supply data that supports providers in improving the student experience; and
     support public accountability.
  4. Every university in the UK takes part in the NSS, as do many colleges and alternative providers. NSS
    response rates have been consistently high.
  5. The OfS recommends that all providers run their own internal promotional campaigns, to ensure the
    survey produces robust data that can be used to further improve the student experience.

There are 27 core questions, relating to the following aspects of the student learning experience:
 Teaching on my Course
 Learning Opportunities
 Assessment and Feedback
 Academic Support
 Organisation and Management
 Learning Resources
 Learning Community
 Student Voice
 Overall Satisfaction
