The National Student Survey

The survey is open to all final year undergraduate students. It's run annually and is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) for England and is independently run by Ipsos Mori. The survey is open from 30th January and runs until 30th April 2017.

It's your opportunity to rate the quality of your overall University experience. Your satisfaction scores are publically available to prospective students, their families and advisors to compare courses and make informed decisions of where and what to study. Your feedback and comments help the University keep what's good and make improvements for the future generation of students.
