NSS 2020 is now live!

Posted on

The National Student Survey (NSS) 2020 is now live at University of Chester. If you’re studying on a course leading to undergraduate credits and are in your final year, you may be eligible for the NSS. Keep an eye out for your invitation email, or visit https://www.thestudentsurvey.com to find out now.

What is the NSS?

The NSS is a nationally recognised annual survey of mainly final year undergraduates in the UK. The survey provides students with an opportunity to give their honest opinions on what they liked about their course at University of Chester as well as things that they feel could be improved. The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research agency on behalf of the Office for Students (OfS), so responses remain completely anonymous at all times.

Who can complete the NSS?

Most students in their final year of study on courses leading to undergraduate credits or qualifications (such as Bachelor’s Degrees and Foundation Degrees) will be surveyed. Any undergraduate students who were eligible in the NSS 2019, or are not yet eligible for the NSS, will get their chance to complete the internal Undergraduate Experience Survey (UGES) later this term.

Why should you take part?

The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your student experience. Your feedback will be used to improve the student experience at University of Chester, as the results are taken very seriously and help us enhance our teaching and resources for future students.

The survey only takes around 10 minutes to complete, and eligible students who complete the survey will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a 13” MacBook Pro, one of three iPad minis or one of twenty-one £50 Amazon vouchers.

What happens with the results?

The NSS results are made publicly available on the Discover Uni website to help prospective students, their families and advisors make informed decisions of where and what to study. Providers and supporting Students’ Unions also use the data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses to bring about change and enhancements to improve the learning experience for future generations of students.
