You Shape UCL


National Student Survey (NSS)

The National Student Survey (NSS) informs future students about courses and universities across the UK. Undergraduates in their final year of study complete the survey.

The NSS is your chance to give anonymous feedback on your experience of UCL and your programme of study.

NSS 2024

The 2024 National Student Survey will be open between 22nd January and 30th April. 

Eligible students will be contacted by email on 26th January and can also complete the survey directly via: www.thestudentsurvey.com

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. 

Your responses and open text comments help to drive changes improvements in UCL's academic departments and support services.
