The National Student Survey – what it is and why you should do it

If you are, or were due to be, in your final year of your undergraduate degree in 2015, you‘ll be asked to take part in the National Student Survey – the NSS – next month.

The NSS is a national, independent and anonymous survey of final year students, which has been conducted every year since 2005. There are 23 questions in total which will ask you to rate various aspects of your course, such as the teaching and the library and IT resources. You’ll be asked to score them on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being “Definitely Agree”. When answering consider your whole experience at Loughborough, from your time as a fresher right up to now.

It’s an opportunity to give feedback on your student experience at Loughborough. No one knows the University better than you, so your opinions about being a student at Loughborough are really important.

By taking part in the survey, you can help future students decide where and what to study. The feedback you give will also help to shape the University and the student experience, both for students who are already here and those who’ll join us in the future.

The 2015 NSS will run from 2 February to 30 April. It takes around 5 minutes to complete and we recommend you do the survey early as Ipsos MORI – an independent market research company, who manage the survey – will continue to remind you until you’ve completed it.

More information on the survey is available on the NSS website.
