National Student Survey 2018A national independent survey that gathers honest opinions from third (or final) year undergraduate students about their educational experience.
The NSS gathers honest opinions from third (or final) year undergraduate students about their time in higher education, their course, and their institution.
The NSS asks 27 questions on 8 aspects of the student experience:
- Learning opportunities
- Assessment and feedback
- Academic support
- Organisation and management
- Learning resources
- Learning community
- Student voice
The NSS is conducted to:
- Inform student choice, for it provides an opportunity for current students to tell future students about the quality of the course (through the Unistats)
- Provide information to enhance the student experience
- Provide public assurance, for the survey acts as a mechanism for the general public to be provided with information about the quality of higher education.
