 What is the National Student Survey?

The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey of undergraduates across the UK. It is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England and is conducted by an independent body, Ipsos-Mori.  

The Survey consists of 27 questions grouped into a number of categories with space at the end for free text comments. All responses are anonymised.

 When is the National Student Survey 2017?

The National Student Survey 2017 is running Monday 16 January to Sunday 30 April 2017.

 What happens to the results?

This annual survey gives final year students the opportunity to reflect on their time at King’s. In combination with feedback on individual modules and through such mechanisms as course representatives, module evaluation, student-staff committees and KCLSU, your NSS feedback is invaluable in providing the College with information in order to improve the learning and living experience for current and future students. 

The results are also made public. Prospective students, their advisors and the public can view NSS results at from September 2017.
