National Student Survey (NSS) – let King’s know what you think

Students at King's

What is the NSS?

The NSS is an annual, national survey which is open to final-year undergraduate students across the UK, and we want to hear from as many of you as possible.

The survey is run by Ipsos MORI and commissioned by the Office for Students (OfS), on behalf of the UK funding and regulatory bodies. It’s a great opportunity for students to share their honest feedback on what it has been like to study on their course at university.

Why should you take part?

  • Completing the survey not only gives you the chance to say what you like about your course at King’s, but importantly what changes could be made to improve your experience.
  • By sharing your feedback, you’ll be making a difference to our university and helping prospective students, who can use the Discover Uni website to compare NSS results to help them make informed choices about where and what to study.
  • You can be honest. The survey is run independently by Ipsos MORI, and all responses are anonymised before they are shared with King’s – so your feedback will remain completely confidential.
  • We are particularly interested in hearing from international students and male students as they have been underrepresented in NSS responses in the past.
  • It’s quick and simple, there are only 27 questions in the NSS. Completing the survey will only take 10 minutes.

When is the NSS open?

At King’s, the NSS will launch on Thursday 20 January and close on Saturday 30 April 2022.

How do I complete the NSS?

All eligible students will receive a personalised link to complete the survey, via email from Ipsos MORI, during the survey period. Alternatively, you can visit the NSS website to complete the survey now.

Charity donation – make an impact with your response

King’s values the NSS and we want to hear from as many students as possible. For NSS 2022, we are donating £1 to Centrepoint, a charity for young people experiencing homelessness, for every completed response received at King’s. To find out more about Centrepoint, visit their website.
