National Student Survey (NSS)
What is the National Student Survey (NSS)?
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 28 questions grouped into a number of categories, with additional questions on Persoanl Development, Students' Union, and Course Delivery, and 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.
When is the National Student Survey 2018?
The National Student Survey 2018 is running Thursday 8 February to Monday 30 April 2018.
Response rates & results
Dashboards for staff with current NSS response rates and results from the 2017 survey have been produced by the Analytics team at King’s. More information is available on the Analytics intranet site.
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 Unistats.com http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/ from September 2018.
