National Student Survey (NSS)
Shape your university for future students
What is the National Student Survey (NSS)?
Please note that NSS 2020 is now closed.
The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey of final year undergraduates across the UK. It is commissioned by the Office for Students (OfS) on behalf of the UK funding and regulatory bodies and is conducted by an independent body, Ipsos MORI.
The Survey consists of 27 questions grouped into a number of categories, with additional questions on Personal Development, Students' Union, and Course Delivery, with space at the end for free text comments. Students on NHS subjects will receive additional questions on their practice placements. All responses are anonymised.

NSS 2020: King's will donate £1 to charity for every completed response received
We value the NSS and want to hear from as many students as possible. For NSS 2020, we are donating £1 to Centrepoint, a homelessness charity for young people, for every completed response received. You can read more about Centrepoint here.
When is the National Student Survey?
At King's, the NSS 2020 ran from Thursday 13 February to Thursday 30 April 2020.
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, 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 Discover Uni.
