Why take the survey?
The NSS 2020
The National Student Survey (NSS) 2020 results are now out. Overall, 83 per cent of the 311,432 UK students who took part are satisfied with the quality of their course.
The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the four UK higher education funding and regulatory bodies (the Office for Students, the Scottish Funding Council, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the Department for Economy Northern Ireland).
The NSS 2020 data can be found on the OfS website: https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/advice-and-guidance/student-information-and-data/national-student-survey-nss/get-the-nss-data/
The UK funders and regulators also committed to analyse the data to assess any impact the coronavirus outbreak has had on the results and make professional judgements about its statistical reliability. The analysis report can be found on the OfS website: https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/publications/nss-2020-analysis-of-impact-of-coronavirus/
The National Student Survey (NSS) is open from 6 January to 30 April 2020.
The NSS gives you the opportunity to say what you think about your course at your university/college. It allows you to say both what you liked and what you think could be improved. Your feedback will be used to help those considering higher education to make decisions about where and what to study. Your university/college and Students' Union (Association or Guild) will also use this information to make real changes to the student experience. All your responses will remain strictly anonymous – at no point will you be identified to your university/college.
So, what do you think?
Provide us with your honest feedback about your experience by clicking 'Complete the Survey' above from 6 January.
