The 2006 National Student Survey (NSS) is coming to an end and final-year undergraduate students must complete the survey by 23 April 2006 in order to have their say on their experience at UCL.

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and is an opportunity to give feedback on all aspects of university life including:

  • course teaching
  • assessment and feedback
  • academic support
  • organisation and management
  • learning resources
  • personal development.

In 2005, UCL received generally positive feedback through the NSS and was assessed by students as one of the most popular universities of the prestigious Russell Group. The NSS also saw English-based Studies at UCL rated as the fourth most popular area of study in the country.

The NSS has proved useful to UCL in identifying areas for improvement and in tackling these. Professor Michael Worton, UCL Vice-Provost (Academic & International), explained: "The area where we scored least well in the NSS was 'assessment and feedback'. This corresponds exactly to our own conclusions. In fact, as Chair of Academic Committee, I set up last session a Working Group on Assessment & Feedback, and I am delighted with the progress that they have made already."
