Final year undergraduates - help improve UCL by participating in the National Student Survey (NSS)

13 January 2016

The NSS launched this week, giving you the opportunity to tell us about your experience at UCL.

The NSS is a short online survey sent to all final year students in the UK and mainly focuses on your academic experiences including the quality of teaching, feedback on your work, learning resources, such as libraries, and the study support and advice you received. 

The NSS is making a difference at UCL

As a result of last year's NSS feedback, we will be publishing your exam timetable earlier this year, extending library opening hours to include weekends, and scrapping ticket fees for graduating students. 

Your opportunity to shape education

A key aim for UCL is creating a culture where we involve students in decision-making. To succeed, staff and students must work together to drive change. The NSS is a crucial part of this partnership and an opportunity to find out what is important to you. 

You help future students make an informed choice

The results of the NSS are published on the official government website UniStats. The website helps future students make an informed choice about university and whether UCL is right for them.

The survey is open from 11 January to 30 April and takes around 5-10 minutes to complete. If 75% or more of the students in your department fill in the NSS we'll give the department a reward for them to spend entirely on you and your fellow final year students.

To take part, go to www.thestudentsurvey.com or search National Student Survey.
