National Student Survey National Student Survey

What is it?

The National Student Survey (NSS) is a very important national survey of all final year undergraduate students across the UK, giving you the chance to feedback about your experience at UEA.

It is a high profile annual census of nearly half a million students across the UK, which gives students a powerful collective voice to help shape the future of both their course and the university.

How do I take part?

During week commencing 3rd February, eligible students will be sent an invitation email to complete the survey by Ipsos MORI. Later, non-respondents will be contacted by text and/or by telephone, so complete the survey early to avoid being reminded.
You can complete the NSS online or via a mobile device at at any time from 3rd February - 30 April. 

Who can take part?

You are eligible for the NSS if you are a final year undergraduate or are on a flexible part-time programme. If your final year cannot easily be predicted, you will be surveyed during your fourth year of study. If you were due to be in your fourth/final year in 2020 but have withdrawn or are repeating your penultimate year, you are also eligible to take part.

Why should I take part?

The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your student experience.

  • Prize draw
    Three prizes of £150 of vouchers will be awarded randomly to students who enter the online survey prize draw before midnight on 30 April 2020. The winners will be notified by email and the results will be announced in the student e-bulletin by the end of May.
  • Improve the student experience
    Your feedback will be used to improve the experience that other students have at UEA. The results are taken very seriously and inform the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality.
  • Inform prospective students
    Results are used by prospective students, their families and advisors to make decisions on what and where to study.
  • Get involved!
    Go on, have your say at UEA. Last year around 70 per cent of eligible UEA students took part – let’s get it even higher this year.
