What is the NSS?
The NSS (National Student Survey) is an annual survey of mainly final year undergraduate students in the UK. It is a nationally recognised independent survey, which asks students to reflect on their Uni experience across a range of areas including teaching quality, academic support, learning resources, student voice and overall satisfaction.
Why should you take part?
The NSS is your opportunity to give your feedback on your Newcastle University experience. It only takes 10 minutes to complete and you will you’ll be helping prospective students make their decision about what and where to study. Plus the University and NUSU will use the feedback to hopefully make improvements to the Newcastle experience in the future. The survey is completely anonymous, so it is your chance to be completely honest about your experience.
As well as the importance of providing feedback, taking part in the NSS is an opportunity to win a prize! 50 students who take part in the survey will be chosen at random to win one of 50 Love2Shop vouchers. These will be available in the following amounts: 5 x £100, 5 x £50, 40 x £25.
When and where do I complete the NSS?
The NSS is open to eligible students at Newcastle University between 4 February and 30 April and can be completed here.
However, if you are eligible you will be contacted by both the University and Ipsos MORI, the longer you leave it the more reminders you will receive from Ipsos MORI (the company who runs the survey) to complete it, including emails and calls. Therefore, you may want to complete the survey as soon as you can!
