National Student Survey: School response rates at 12th February
The National Student Survey (NSS) is now underway. If your School gets a response rate of 70% or above by Monday 19th February, the University will enter all NSS-eligible* students in that School into a draw for two LSU Grad Ball tickets. The two winners for each qualifying School will be drawn at random.
Here’s a quick summary of the School response rates as at Monday 12th February:
The School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences has the highest response rate so far of 55%.
Loughborough Design School is in second with a response rate of almost 36%.
And the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering is hot on the Design School’s heels with almost 32%.
All the other Schools currently have response rates between 14% and 26%.
If you haven’t yet completed the NSS, do it now, and help your School reach that 70% threshold by Monday 19th February!
The NSS is an annual, independent and anonymous survey that offers final year undergraduates the chance to give feedback on their time at Loughborough. If you are eligible to take part in this year’s survey, you will be contacted by Ipsos MORI, an external market research company. We recommend you complete the survey as soon as it opens, as Ipsos MORI will continue to send you reminders you until you’ve completed it.
The NSS is an opportunity for you to give your feedback on your student experience at Loughborough. No one knows the University better than you, so your opinions about being a student here are really important.
By taking part in the survey, you’ll be helping future students make the right choices about where and what to study. It will also give us information about what you have valued the most about your experience and what you’d like us to change at the University so that we can carry on developing and improving the student experience.
There are 27 questions in the survey, which will ask you to rate your course, the facilities at the University, and the Students’ Union. You’ll be asked to score them on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest rating.
When answering the questions, consider your whole experience at Loughborough, from your time as a fresher right until now.
The survey will run until 30th April.
* You are eligible for the NSS if you are a final year undergraduate or are on a flexible part-time programme. If your final year cannot be easily predicted, you will be surveyed after you are expected to have undertaken one full-time equivalent, and not before your fourth year of study. You are only invited to be surveyed once.
