The National Student Survey (NSS) is a survey of final year students.
It allows you to provide feedback on a range of topics, including what you thought about the academic support you received during your studies and how you felt about the organisation and management of your course.
If you have not completed the survey yet, hurry! It closes on Monday 30 April 2012. Go to www.thestudentsurvey.com now!
Why should I bother?
By sparing just a few minutes to complete the NSS you can really make change.
Does it really make a difference?
These are some examples of what was said at last year’s NSS and what the University has done about it so far:
You said: The University Library should be open for longer.
We did: The Library was open 24 hours during the exam period this January, and will be open 24 hours during May this year.
You said: We want more PCs available on campus.
We did: We’ve added more PCs in the Open Access area in the University Library and we’re installing more Quick Access PCs across the campus, starting in Richmond Building.
You said: We want to see our timetables earlier and have fewer changes.
We did: The Vice-Chancellor is taking overall responsibility for timetabling. We plan to give students a draft timetable in August, with only essential changes thereafter.
