You shape UCL


NSS News and Results

You may have heard of the National Student Survey already as every final year undergraduate in the UK is invited to participate. The NSS is used to inform future students about courses and universities across the UK. This survey takes place in the second term of your final year, and takes about five to ten minutes to complete. It mainly focuses on your academic experience.

National Student Survey 2017

Update – more than 2100 students respond

The National Student Survey (NSS) closed on Friday 12 May and this year 2,112 final year undergraduates gave us their feedback, meaning we finished on a response rate of 49.4% overall.  This compares to a response rate of 79% in 2016, demonstrating the impact of the UCLU boycott on the NSS this year.

Your anonymous feedback and comments gathered through the survey will  be sent to your department in August so that your voice can be heard. Professor Anthony Smith, Vice-Provost (Education and Student Affairs) says, ‘In spite of the boycott, we are pleased that we will receive feedback from almost half of all final year students. I hope we can put the boycott behind us and focus on ensuring good response rates to other keys surveys such as the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) and module evaluations – the student voice is a vital component of our improvement processes and collaboration between students and staff is what drives change at UCL.’
