Final-year* undergraduate students are encouraged to complete this year's National Student Survey (NSS) which is being run this term. Students will be asked to complete the survey, which should take no more than five minutes, over the next few weeks.

The NSS 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.

The survey is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and is administered by Ipsos-MORI, an independent research agency. Ipsos-MORI will contact students this term with an invitation to complete the survey online. Students who do not respond will be sent a postal questionnaire to their term-time address and may also be contacted by telephone. 

Results of the survey will be available to prospective students on the Unistats website, where the 2008 NSS results are available. UCL is committed to acting on student comments. The results are also considered by the Joint Staff Student Committee and made available to student representatives at faculty and departmental level. 

To complete the survey, please use the link at the top of this article.

* In some cases, students, particularly on programmes with a 3 or 4 year option, may be surveyed in their penultimate year.
