NSS 2023

About the National Student Survey

About the National Student Survey 

The national student survey is open to all eligible students from the Monday 30 January to Sunday 30 April 2023. If you are eligible to take the survey you will receive an email from the National Student Survey in the week commencing 30 January with a link to the survey. 

The survey is conducted independently by Ipsos Mori and asks a series of questions about your student experience.  Universities can promote the survey and encourage their students to complete the survey, however it is important that this promotion does not influence responses.  More information for students on inappropriate influence is available from the OfS website

Results are made available on the Discover Uni website where prospective students can compare different institutions and use the information to make informed decisions about where to apply. Anonymised results are also made available to the University.  

We value honest feedback on your experiences and use results to look at areas where we can make improvements to the experience of all students.
