Get ready for the National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) launches at Loughborough next week, on Monday 4 February. The NSS is an annual, independent and anonymous survey, which 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.

There are 27 questions in the survey, which will ask you to rate several aspects of your experience at Loughborough, including your course, the facilities at the University and the learning resources available. You’ll be asked to score them on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest rating.

The University has opted to include some additional questions about the following areas too:

  • The Students’ Union
  • Work placements
  • Course delivery
  • Welfare resources and facilities
  • Entrepreneurial opportunities
  • Student safety

When answering the questions, consider your whole experience at Loughborough, from your time as a fresher right until now.

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’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.

More information on the survey is available on our dedicated web page and the NSS website.

* 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.
