Who carries out the Student Satifaction Survey?
The National Student Satisfaction Survey is carried out by independent company Ipsos and the Office for Students.
How is student satisfaction measured?
Each year, the National Student Survey asks students from across the UK what they really thought of their higher education experience. This independent survey is conducted without any input from the college or university and all UK students on an HE course can give their feedback. the feedback is offered anonymously which ensures that students are totally honest.
The survey covers topics such as access to resources, teaching and course content.
How is the NSS survey data used?
The National Student Survey was set up to give prospective students a real insight into studying with a Higher Education establishment. You can find out what actual students really thought of their course – no marketing testimonials, no fake reviews!
the student satisfaction feedback also allows us to make changes to our course content, delivery methods and teaching in line with student expectations and comments. It also provides the UK’s higher education regulators with important information to ensure your degree is the best it can be for you and your future.
Each year around 5 million students take part in the NSS.
